Immigrant Heritage Month: Bring Your Story!

June is Immigrant Heritage Month, and we’re celebrating with our Bring Your Story events and activities!

More than one million immigrants live in Queens, and we want to know your story. Visit your library to map your story using our special map and string and show where you or your family have journeyed from.

Share your story through recipes, traditional clothing, and more, or come together with your family to create a flag representing your unique story, or learn more about how to research your ancestors.

Plus, you can enjoy music, dance, and other cultural performances celebrating the many diverse cultures found in Queens, from Ecuadorian to Japanese, Spanish to Hindi, and so many more.

Celebrate with us, Bring Your Story, and experience the diversity of Queens all month long at the Library!
