Celebrate Earth Day at Queens Library!

April 22 is Earth Day, and we're marking the occasion with arts & crafts, celebrations, science workshops, and more.

Plus, you can watch several Earth Day-themed movies on Kanopy, our on-demand video streaming service, all for free with your library card.

Join us for our special programs before and after Earth Day and help us raise awareness about protecting the planet we all call home (and have a lot of fun at the same time)!
