Assemblyman Al Graf (R,C–Holbrook) recently joined Assemblyman Dean Murray in presenting the Bayport-Blue Point Library with $16,500 in funding to replace a damaged roof at the facility. Graf highlighted the importance of preserving public libraries and the integral role they play in the community.

“Our public libraries provide fun and informational services to the people of our community, both young and old,” said Graf. “The Bayport-Blue Point Library was in dire need of a new roof, and they are extremely deserving of this grant. I encourage everyone to stop by their local library and take advantage of the wide range of programs and services they provide.”

The library construction grant was provided as part of $14 million in capital funds for public library construction included in the 2010-11 New York State Budget.
