The Elmhurst Library (86-01 Broadway), a rare surviving “Carnegie Library” dating back to 1906, could meet the wrecking ball as early as 2008. Please sign the following petition to endorse preservation-friendly proposals that would spare it from demolition, while accommodating a growing number of users:
Save The Elmhurst Carnegie Library!
At a 2007 Newtown Civic Association meeting, James Van Bramer, Dir. of Government & Community Affairs of the Queens Library, explained he is seeking dialogue from the community and preservationists. If enough people oppose the proposed demolition, he would be open to possibilities along the lines of historic preservation which highlight the much-needed expansion.
Therefore, it is highly recommended that petition signers post comments of quality. Please forward this e-mail and the link to your colleagues. Time is of the essence!
Thank you for your support,
Queens Preservation Council, Preservationist
Rego-Forest Preservation Council, Chair
