Queens Artists and Nonprofit Organizations: Do You Need Funding?

Location: Lefferts
Registration: Not required

Queens Council on the Arts supports the hard work and contributions of Queens-based individual artists and nonprofit organizations producing cultural programming in all arts disciplines through grants. Applicants must attend a Application Information Session to learn about the guidelines before applying.


Thank you for your interest in the Friends of the Library at Queens Library.

We currently do not have a Friends group at this location, however, kindly contact the Friends Administrator (friends@queenslibrary.org) to find an active Friends group near you. 

Friends Chapters enrich community life around their community library. You will meet other people who care, and you will benefit your neighborhood by:

• Increasing community awareness and library use.
• Acting as liaisons between community and your library.
• Sponsoring programs that enhance the cultural life of your community.

As a Friend, you will:

• Educate your community about Queens Library’s vital services.
• Contribute your time towards programs and special activities at your library.
• Advocate for better library service to your own community through outreach, legislative contact, and fundraising.
