Queens Public Library Wellness Tour 2021
The QPL Mobile Library is hitting the roads of the Rockaways and Southeast Queens for its first-ever “Wellness Tour” every Wednesday afternoon from September 29 through November 17, offering facts and information about good health and self-care. A QPL librarian will be aboard the bus to answer your questions, and guide you through a special collection of books and other materials to help you stay well or get well. You can also sign up for a library card, return borrowed items, use the Mobile Library’s WiFi, and listen to soothing live classical music from the activist orchestra The Dream Unfinished.
