Mission Statement

The mission of the Queens Library is to provide quality services, resources, and lifelong learning opportunities through books and a variety of other formats to meet the informational, educational, cultural, and recreational needs and interests of its diverse and changing population.


We at Queens Library believe deeply in equity and that libraries are fundamental in empowering people to take charge of their lives, their governments and their communities.

Volunteers lend their talents and time on behalf of others. Ranging in age from 14 to 80, volunteers are a daily inspiration to customers; help deliver great programming and services; and offer the highest quality of attentiveness to the public.

You can make a difference by helping at any one of our 70 locations, located in every Queens neighborhood. You can...

  • Help homebound adults, youth, and seniors get books, movies, and music through Mail-a-Book Services
  • Read to youngsters whose parents are working or still learning English
  • Teach adults job skills and interview techniques
  • Help teens strengthen their academic skills and prepare for college as a Homework Helper or Academic Tutor
  • Welcome New Americans, helping them learn English and prepare them to become citizens...and more!

Would you recommend Queens Library?

by jamal w. from East Elmhurst, NY (October 18, 2014)
Because the computer and wireless inside it is free and we can borrow books free for 20 days normally and we can take english classes for free in queens library. The people work in library are so polite and helpful.
