CLAREMONT -

The P.S. 42 Claremont Community School celebrated the opening of its newly renovated library Tuesday that had been closed for a decade.

The library now has bright-colored walls illustrated with story book pictures and brand-new shelves.

Principal Lucia Orduz told News 12 that the library was practically a “dumping ground” for furniture and boxes over the years.

She applied for a grant with Councilwoman Vanessa Gibson's Office, requesting capital funding for the creation of a library.

“I thought I was dreaming,” said Orduz, after seeing the new library.

It will serve more than 400 students at the school, as well as staff and parents.
