Many community members – but not all – know that the McGoldrick Public Library at 155th St. and Roosevelt Ave. was named in honor of St. Andrew Avellino’s founding pastor Rev. Edward F. McGoldrick.
A strong advocate for education and knowing that one day he would establish a school, Father McGoldrick was instrumental in uniting the community to have a library established almost a century ago. He served on the Queens Borough Public Library Board of Trustees for many years. The library was recently renovated and on Tues. Nov. 28 at 3 PM there will be a special dedication ceremony hosted by QPL President Dennis Walcott.
Rev. Joseph T. Holcomb will offer a benediction. The St. Andrew Avellino Academy Chorus will perform and a beautiful plaque honoring Father McGoldrick will be unveiled.
Refreshments will be served. All are invited.
NOTE: Unfortunately parking in the Murray Hill shopping center lot is reserved for SHOPPERS ONLY! Others will be TOWED.
