To Our Customers:

Thank you for your interest in Queens Library. With your support, last year was one of our best and busiest years.

We welcomed over 11.2 million customers to our libraries and held 68,000 programs for more than 1.1 million people. We circulated over 13 million materials and connected more than 477,000 people to the internet.

Your public libraries are among Queens’s most important assets, and they serve your needs nearly every single day.

We want everyone in Queens to understand how library funding is spent, and to feel free to give us feedback on your priorities. Through this process, we hope to make Queens Library an even more well-used and impactful library system.
