In the News: Discussion Group for Adults

Location: Broad Channel
Registration: Not required

This group is an opportunity to address topical issues, exchange ideas, and enjoy the stimulation of new perspectives in a social group where people get to meet and discuss current happenings.
Since opinions, by definition, can never be right or wrong, all participants are encouraged to bring their own perspective and history. And they are welcome, in a non-judgmental framework, to express themselves on the issues confronting all thinking people. The discussion group is open to all.

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:

As a Friend, you will:

• Educate your community about Queens Library’s vital services.
