    Every library in every community will be open at least six days a week! That means there will be more opportunities to take advantage of all the great programs and services Queens Library offers. They include more story times for our youngest library users, new Saturday classes for adults working towards their high school  diplomas, more time to use library computers or borrow a tablet to take home, more chances to grab the latest best seller.
