Step aside Lollapalooza, Queens Library is going on tour!

To celebrate National Library Week (April 10-16) and National Bookmobile Day (April 13), Queens Library is hitting the road with its Mobile Library, bringing the fun and thrills of books to towns across the borough.

You’re invited to drop by, sign up for a free Queens Library card, borrow a great book, and say hello! Everyone’s getting involved, including Borough President Melinda Katz (see Thursday schedule below).

Seventeen stops are planned with special programs, such as violinist Shayshahn “Phearnone” MacPherson and bricks4kidz at certain stops (see below). Please celebrate with us at the below locations and times. You can also sign up for daily updates, so you don’t miss a single stop!

NOTE: Additional guests to be added. Schedule is subject to change.
