To Our Customers:

Thank you for your interest in Queens Library. With your support, last year was one of our best and busiest years.

We welcomed over 11.2 million customers to our libraries and held 80,000 programs for more than 1.2 million people. We circulated over 12.7 million materials and there were nearly 3 million computer sessions with over 9,000 public access computers.

Your public libraries are among Queens’s most important assets, and they serve your needs nearly every single day.

Please review the budget proposal. We want everyone in Queens to understand how library funding is spent and to give us their feedback. As we plan for the future of Queens Library, your input is one of the most important parts of the process. 

We welcome you to share your perspectives at our Public Budget Hearing on Thursday, April 19, at 6:00 p.m at Queens Central Library located at 89-11 Merrick Blvd, Jamaica.

You can provide written comments on the Library’s proposed budget from April 20 to May 20. You can use the online feedback form or you can mail your feedback to:
