MESSAGE TO THE COMMUNITY

RE: HURRICANE SANDY and COMMUNITY ASSISTANCE

Queens Library knows that you depend on us for computer access, homework help and so many other programs and resources that will assist in the clean-up and recovery following Hurricane Sandy.  Staff are working around the clock to open all libraries as quickly as possible.

Most libraries are open on their normal schedules. Please see the list below.  Several libraries have minor damage and/or power outages. They will re-open as soon as power is restored and the buildings have been deemed safe. Four libraries in low-lying areas of Queens (Arverne, Broad Channel, Peninsula and Seaside) have been damaged severely. They will remain closed, temporarily, while extensive repairs are made. It is likely to take several months. The Book Bus is already operating in front of Queens Library at Peninsula. We are currently looking for other locations throughout the area from which to provide services while those libraries are restored.

Queens Library joins the community in supporting our neighbors who have lost so much.
