City Councilman Vincent Gentile was recently joined by council speaker and mayoral candidate Christine Quinn to announce a new library program meant to improve citizens’ access to city government.
“I was proud to join City Council Speaker Christine C. Quinn early this morning to present a new, innovative proposal for a citywide system of “Mini City Halls” inside our libraries that will serve as a one-stop shop for New Yorkers seeking help navigating access to important programs and services,” said Gentile, who serves as the Libraries Subcommittee Chairman, in a press release. “Libraries play a tremendous role in the communities they serve so turning them into ‘Mini City Halls’ is a no-brainer. This innovative proposal will help to better meet the needs of New Yorkers by making government more accessible. I thank Speaker Quinn, my Council colleagues and the New York Public Library system for their dedication to the people of New York City.”
