Addabbo List Of Spring Mobile Office Hours At Local Libraries

    Senator Joseph Addabbo Jr.

    State Senator Joseph P. Addabbo, Jr. (D) on Friday released his full list of spring mobile office hours throughout his district.

    Each year, Addabbo visits libraries across his district in order to meet with residents, business owners and civic leaders, after his district offices have closed for the day.

    “Getting out into the communities I represent and hearing from people firsthand is really at the core of what I do as an elected official. I understand that it may be difficult for many people to come out to one of my district offices during regular business hours, so these Mobile Office Hours allow those people to directly interact with me at a time that is more convenient for them,” said Addabbo.

    Addabbo has seven scheduled Mobile Office Hours at the following locations on these dates:

    • Thursday, April 12, 2018 at Maspeth Library located at 69-70 Grand Avenue;
    • Thursday, April 19, 2018 at Rego Park Library located at 91-31 63rd Drive;
    • Thursday, April 26, 2018 at Forest Hills Library located at 108-19 71st Avenue;
    • Thursday, May 3, 2018 at Ridgewood Library located at 20-12 Madison Street;
    • Thursday, May 10, 2018 at Peninsula Library located at 92-25 Rockaway Beach Blvd.;
    • Thursday, May 24, 2018 at Woodhaven Library located at 85-41 Forest Parkway; and
    • Thursday, June 28, 2018 at Ozone Park Library located at 92-24 Rockaway Blvd.

    Each library office hours visit will be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. For more information on Addabbo’s Mobile Office Hours, you can call his Howard Beach office at 718-738-1111.
