Gonzalez: Queens Library chief spends $140G on office remodeling while two branches in the Rockaways remain closed, unfixed post-Sandy

“Thomas Galante, the Queens Library chief who somehow managed to spend $140,000 in taxpayer funds last year to renovate his executive offices, hasn’t shown the same skill at restoring neighborhood libraries devastated by Hurricane Sandy. Of four Queens Library branches in the Rockaways damaged by the superstorm 15 months ago, two remain closed. Take, for example, the Peninsula branch. The sprawling one-story building takes up nearly half a block along Rockaway Blvd. Yet it sits empty and shuttered, with no sign of any construction (via NY Daily News)
