Jerry Kann

Green Party Candidate for
New York City Council

District 22 - Astoria, Queens

 

More support for libraries and youth services

Libraries are especially important for a neighborhood like Astoria— one with many recent immigrants and lots of children and older people.

The Queens Public Library is an excellent resource for English as a Second Language (ESL) courses, for Internet access for students and others who don’t have computers at home, and for all sorts of cultural activities. New York City should be increasing, not cutting, funds for libraries and community centers— places that give kids a refuge from the street and an a healthy environment for learning.
