The Garden City Public Library Board has been working to obtain outside funds to implement future improvements, including an updated Children’s Room. Thanks to support from Garden City’s two state legislators, additional funding up to $200,000 is possible through the State and Municipal (SAM) Grant program, which can be applied to capital improvements.

Library Director Marianne Malagon said, “We are very grateful to Senator Thomas and Assemblyman Ra for their help. It will help us to achieve our goals of redesigning the space.”
