Assemblywoman Melissa Miller (R,C,Ref-Atlantic Beach) and Assemblyman Brian Curran (Lynbrook-21st A.D.) are pleased to announce they have secured a $13,000 bullet aid grant for the Oceanside Library.
“Libraries are more than just places to borrow books. They provide the opportunity for communities to come together and expand their horizons,” said Miller. “I am so pleased we can help the Oceanside Library increase its security system and its reach to better include adults with special needs into the community. Securing funding for the Oceanside Library, and other local libraries in need, is something we will continue to campaign for in the future to guarantee libraries can continue to provide for the future generations of our communities.”
Oceanside Library plans to use the funds for two projects. The first to enhance its security system and the second project is to increase the amount of programs they host for special-needs adults, including programs on work readiness and social situations.
“I am very happy to announce that Assemblywoman Miller and I were able secure this additional state funding for the Oceanside Library,” said Curran. “The library is an important resource center for this community, and we will continue to advocate for funding so that, when necessary, we can make improvements and upgrades to ensure that our library serves our residents for many years to come.”
