Expanding Hours of Service!

2015-11-15

Thanks to an historic investment in libraries by Mayor de Blasio and the NY City Council, Queens Library will be expanding its hours of service as of the week of Nov. 15, 2015. The new schedule is here.

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. Watch for information about special celebrations in the coming weeks.

Queens Library joins the community in thanking Mayor Bill de Blasio, Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito, Finance Chair Julissa Ferreras, Cultural Affairs and Libraries Committee Chair Jimmy Van Bramer, Subcommittee Chair Andy King and the whole City Council for investing in all New Yorkers by investing in libraries.
