The idea was suggested by a resident, and in the fall of 2019 the Sydenia Goodner Library came to fruition and was dedicated to serve the Bradford Lake Community. The donated books and videos provide an extensive variety for the residents to “check out”. One of Bradford’s own maintenance team members, Robert Connell (who also just happens to be a Master Carpenter) was happy to design and build the impressive bookcase.
An Official Greeting from Mayor of Indianapolis, Joseph H. Hogsett reads:
Sydenia Goodner – “in recognition of your 42 years as a Housing Choice Manager at Bradford Lake Apartments and your recent efforts to establish the Sydenia Goodner Library onsite. I commend your desire to strengthen the Bradford Lake Community through access to education and knowledge. The Sydenia Goodner Library will impact the community for many years to come.”
