It’s #participatorybudgeting voting season! Each fiscal year, the @NYCCouncil provides residents of participating Council Districts with the opportunity to directly decide how to spend at least $1 million of their districts’ capital funds.

You can use your vote to help secure more city money for your local library projects, including technology upgrades, space renovation, and enhanced accessibility.

Visit our homepage to see the library projects that are on this year's ballot and the #QueensLibrary locations where you can cast your vote. You can also vote online, starting Saturday, April 7.

Strengthen your community’s resources and make sure your #library gets the funding it deserves—because nobody knows what your library needs better than you do! #PBNYC #NewYorkCityCouncil #CostaConstantinides #KarenKoslowitz #JimmyVanBramer #PaulVallone #EastFlushing #Poppenhusen #Douglaston #LittleNeck #Astoria #SteinwayLibrary # BroadwayLibrary #Woodside #RichmondHill

@theartestfoundation and @cm3elite which coaches and supports the Basketball Teams here at the club, joined with @rockdeepglobal today to announce their sponsorship of our girls basketball 🏀 team and to supply them with brand new uniforms and sneakers.

We are grateful to all of them for the support they bring our kids. #astoria #lic #basketball #longislandcity #queens #nyc #kids #afterschool #clubs #sports #swim #dance #cooking #health #art #comics #stem #steam #media #film

In an effort to protect the #environment and better use our financial resources, Queens Library will stop offering plastic shopping bags to our customers at all 65 locations on June 30, 2018.

#Plasticbags release toxins into the ground and water, can take hundreds of years to decompose, and in many cases are used only once. The Library currently gives away 1 million plastic bags each year, adding approximately 24 tons of #plastic to the waste stream.

You can read our press release and share your ideas with us about this new policy by visiting the Queens Library homepage.

Thank you to @nylcv; the New York City Environmental Justice Alliance; @sierraclub; #CostaConstantinides, the chair of the @NYCCouncil Committee on #Environmental Protection; and @JimmyVanBramer, the chair of the NYC Council Committee on Cultural Affairs, #Libraries, and International Intergroup Relations, for their support.

Getting back to the business of garbage trucks, a neighbor shared a citizen alert sharing that one such vehicle collided with a car on 21st Street. This is the type of problem that we are trying to avert through focused attention and effective problem solving. On 35th Avenue there are 15 -23 trucks occupying the entire right lane, obstructing views and causing safety hazards for residents, pedestrians and drivers. #ny1, #ny1news, #qgazette #woodsideherald, Assemblymember Nolan, Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer, Public Advocate Leticia James and Costa Constantinides have given their support for resolving this issue and May 2018 is the most recent target date for removal of the trucks according to multiple sources. #costaconstantinides #jimmyanbramer #leticiajamespublicadvocate #davidaglialoro #qgazette #woodsideherald #sunnysiders #sunnysideartists #mayordeblasio #scottstringer #mayor #nycgov #nyclife🗽 #metrofocus #Ravenswood #lic #Astoria #normandeaunewswire #j4ac

The beauty of small things. Saw a patch of velvety moss on my walk from the gym. Without calling out my name, it got my attention. This is the real #lic #Astoria Enjoy!l Take your time and don't rush past the beauty and wonder of greenspace that seems to be shrinking.

"Public Land for Public Use" - Last night's forum at #laguardiacommunitycollege offered an ideal outreach to young.students who are at risk because of diminished prospects for affordable housing; the selling off of greenspace and the escalating cost of living. Corporate interests and Government incentives seem to be widening the gap between political will and the public good. Your neighborhood park, playground or parking lot may soon be a highrise condo that blocks out your sun and adds to area congestion contributing to negative environmental impacts.
Stay tuned. Stay Woke.

Toxic & polluting styrene (styro) foam should be banned in #nyc, not recycled! Our #4thgrade #zerowaste leaders (#NESTm) debated the issue in class and decided to speak out for a #foamban! Our @nycsanitation Commissioner deemed foam food service ware NOT recyclable (twice). Call your @nyccouncil member and ask her/him to vote no on Intro 1480, the industry-backed bill and to vote yes to ban foam in NYC (yes, again). http://council.nyc.gov/district.

This is sure to be my longest post to date. Please take the time to read it. Words aren't quite my forte here, but I want to try to express my heartfelt gratitude to everyone who mobilized so quickly to bring last night's #Queens4Love vigil together.

It started with the swift approval from @nycparks and Detective Negrone at the #114thPrecinct. What usually takes three weeks to process, took just two days. We needed tables, speakers, flyers, street outreach, roses volunteers, artists. And we needed to spread the word. Thank you @elizabethvermotwick of @astoriacoffeeny for all the flyers, and Christine of @queensknits for rushing in to offer anything and everything you could. To Alex & Pete of @petalsandroots for donating 50 beautiful roses to honor each victim. To Havi of @hifirecordsastoria and Kenny of @r2gnyc for bringing much needed tables. To Sana (@scripturiently), Brandi (@iambrandik), and Mecca for courageously sharing your beautiful talents of poetry and song. To Ashley (@puravidaash) for meeting at the ungodly hour of 8am to hang flyers. To @RyanKrukowski, the photographer responsible for this beautiful image, who, after his incredibly hectic day, still came through to capture the evening for us all to remember. To Council Member #CostaConstantinides for addressing everyone with words on his own family, his sentiments on gun violence, and for praising our neighborhood's connectedness. Oh, and you can thank the generous Carla (@carlznyc) for those beautiful LOVE balloons, and for everything else she offered throughout the process. A very special thank you to David, (@undergroundaquarium) for physically helping set everything up, storing equipment, and honestly, just being there to help calm the nerves. To those who promoted the vigil, posted the flyer, brought your family or friends, thank you, I've tried to tag you all in this photo. To my mom who donated money to help with unexpected costs and to my loving husband, Benny, for his constant support. To everyone who attended and donated funds to help cover permit costs and more to send to @equalityfl's fundraiser. You pledged $268 for the victims and their families. I'm out of space. ❤️
