Statement on the Passing of Helen Marshall

2017-03-04

Queens Library would not be the world-class library system it is today without Helen. She believed in libraries as places where communities are empowered and inspired, where children can nurture a love of learning and discovery and where adults can gain the skills they need to adapt to a changing workforce. Her passion for libraries drove her to secure a record amount of capital funding to upgrade, expand or improve many of the 62 libraries throughout our system and to continue to open new ones.

Helen was a personal inspiration; her advocacy on behalf of children was exemplary, and she represented Queens with dignity. Her leadership and vision will be felt in our libraries and beyond for generations, and we will be forever grateful to her.

-- Dennis M. Walcott, President and CEO, Queens Library
