On Sunday, April 13, 2014, New York State Assemblywoman Ellen Jaffee (D-Suffern, Rockland County) visited the Finkelstein Memorial Library in Spring Valley, NY. for a dedication of new group study rooms funded by a grant obtained through Ms. Jaffee. Among those in attendance were Finkelstein library trustee David Hershkowitz and Public Services Consultant and Outreach Coordinator, Grace Riario, of the Ramapo Catskill Library System. Library Director Tracy Allen and Head of Adult Services Evelyn Daks coordinated the event.
One of the library's goals has been to increase space for independent study and homework help at the library. Now, thanks to this grant secured by Assemblywoman Jaffee, four quiet and group study rooms have been built. Each room is equipped with electrical outlets and wireless internet access is available. There is no charge for using the rooms but there are time limits to ensure fair access to all.
For further information, please call the Library at: 845-352-5700, ext. 243.
