 HONORING THE GALWAY PUBLIC LIBRARY ON THE OPENING OF ITS NEW FACILITY

                                 ______

                              of new york

                    in the house of representatives

                        Monday, October 28, 2019

  Ms. STEFANIK. Madam Speaker, I rise today to honor The Galway Public 
Library on the opening of its new facility.
  Over the past decade, the entire community of Galway has been 
contributing to the effort to construct the new library. This new 
facility is more than three times the size of the old one, which was 
founded in 1997, and will act as a holistic community center. It will 
offer venue space and technology resources for all the residents of 
Galway to use and benefit from in addition to the collection of books 
and other media. The library has been supported not only by tax dollars 
but also by private donations, grants and bonds approved by the voters. 
Further, the move from the old library was supported by over one 
hundred volunteers who worked hundreds of hours ensure that the 
transition was successful. This level of civic involvement highlights 
everything that makes the North Country so vibrant and makes me proud 
to be its representative in Congress.
  On Behalf on New York's 21st Congressional District, I want to 
congratulate the residents of the Town of Galway on this amazing 
accomplishment. I look forward to the success of the new Galway Public 
Library as a centerpiece of the community long into the future.
