The Friends raise funds in support of Court Square Library through the Buy-A-Book campaign, concession sales, and other fundraising activities. They work to publicize library programs in the community and work with Queens Library and local elected officials to highlight special events like the opening of the newly renovated Children’s Room and the announcement of Saturday service.

Since the summer of 2016, the Friends helped coordinate Court Square Library’s participation in Summer Kids at the Landing with the Hunters Point Parks Conservancy at LIC Landing. In the Fall of 2016, the Friends of Court Square Library participated in Lot Fest, in partnership with M. Wells Steakhouse and Queens Library. In May, 2018, we hosted our first community Book Swap. The Friends also host ongoing information sessions related to the New York City Department of Education.
