To Our Customers:

Thank you for your interest in Queens Library. With your support, last year was one of our best and busiest years.

We welcomed over 11.2 million customers to our libraries and held 68,000 programs for more than 1.1 million people. We circulated over 13 million materials and connected more than 477,000 people to the internet.

Your public libraries are among Queens’s most important assets, and they serve your needs nearly every single day.

Please review the attached budget proposal. We want everyone in Queens to understand how library funding is spent and to give us their feedback. As we plan for the future of Queens Library, your input is one of the most important parts of the process. 

We welcome you to share your perspectives at our Public Budget Hearing at Central Library on Thursday, April 20, at 6:00 p.m. You can provide written comments on the Library’s proposed budget from April 21 to May 20. An online feedback form is available on our website or you can mail your feedback to:
