Dear Library Customer:

Thank you for your interest in Queens Library. Your public libraries are among Queens’s most important and best-used assets. Queens Library provided free lifelong learning, resources and information to more than 11.8 million children and adults last year. Millions more took advantage of our online resources. We want everyone in Queens to understand how library funding is spent, and to feel free to give us feedback on your priorities. Through this process, we hope to make Queens Library an even more well-used and impactful library system.

An Open Budget Hearing was held on March 30, 2015 at the Flushing Library. You may view video of the hearing here.
