Live performances, music, dance and more at Queens Library!

COME CELEBRATE! Every library in every neighborhood will be open six days a week, beginning the week of Nov. 15 and the Queens Library invites everyone to FREE gala programs on Saturday, November 21. Live performances, music, dance, arts & crafts, clowns, special guest appearance throughout The Borough all day… and it’s all FREE!

But this is just the beginning. The library is scheduling additional programs throughout the year. There will be more books, more chances to use the computers, more videos to borrow, more homework help, more chances to improve your English or study for a high school diploma, more music, more dance, more author talks, more interesting conversations—more Queens Library!

If you haven’t been to the library lately, you haven’t been to the library!
