Older adult on the phone

Older adults can break the isolation of this time by participating in Queens Public Library's Mail-A-Book teleconferences to chat, play bingo, learn about art, and so much more. Check out our videoconferences too. Contact Madlyn.S.Schneider@queenslibrary.org for registration for any program. Visit our calendar for a list of upcoming programs. The Mail-A-Book service is temporarily unavailable, but teleconferences continue along with new videoconferences.

Join us for the history of photography and a series on impressionists.

You can also experience teleconferences from around the country. Try learning a new skill from the safety and comfort of home. We are here to help keep you connected and informed, and have curated a list of some programs for you to try in addition to offering our own programs. We have also curated a list of trusted sources of information.
