Support Queens Public Library's Outstanding Programs and Services

These grants support Queens Public Library’s outstanding programs, services, and workshops that build strong communities and cultivate intellectual and personal growth. This includes programs like: 

  • Toddler Learning, which serves our youngest patrons and fosters the role of parents as a child’s first teacher.
  • Mail-A-Book, which delivers library materials and engaging programs to our elder homebound customers. 
  • Workshops like Jamaica FEASTS, which graduates successful entrepreneurs who participated in events and markets throughout the city.  

Queens Public Library reaches beyond its walls with special initiatives that include the Mobile Library, which provides free Wi-Fi, books, DVDs, pickups requested online, and library card sign-ups; the Queens Memory Project, which collects and digitizes personal histories, photographs, and other records of contemporary life in Queens; and Telestory, a video visitation program that allows families to conduct a “live video visit” with their family members incarcerated at Rikers Island.

The Queens Public Library Foundation works closely with corporations and foundations to advance their philanthropic mission and provide greatly needed resources for the people of Queens.

TD Charitable Foundation Awarded a Significant Grant
to Stacks After-School Program


“By providing access to new technology to everyone, by continuing to be a safe haven for thought, workspace, and imagination, and by establishing cutting edge programs, Queens Public Library continues to level the playing field and give Queens residents an assist with a helping hand.

In order to help in that mission, TD Charitable Foundation awarded a significant grant to STACKS After-School. It’s a program that builds on Queens Public Library’s historical role as a primary after-school destination for children to study, read, and explore with their peers.

TD Bank will continue to be inspired by our neighbors and organizations like the Queens Public Library. We will continue to touch diverse communities, organizations, issues, and people in the hopes of inspiring others to make a real difference in their own communities.“

"Before I started STACKS in the fifth grade, I was not getting the best grades and did not always finish my homework on time. I wasn’t sure if I was meant to be a good student. Because the STACKS teachers taught me how to study and manage my time better, my grades started to come up. I began doing so well that I made it to the honor roll. I also started to have more confidence in myself. I even gave the valedictorian speech at my fifth grade graduation!”
