Friends of Queens Public Library

The Friends of Queens Public Library were established to increase the support and involvement of local residents to help achieve the mission of the institution to "transform lives by cultivating personal and intellectual growth and by building strong communities".

Friends groups meet on a regular basis to:

  • Sponsor library programming and services that would otherwise be limited or unavailable due to budget constraints

  • Conduct outreach to the community and inform residents about library activities and resources

  • Participate in advocacy campaigns designed to garner widespread support of critical library priorities 

Queens Public Library convenes groups representing branches and neighborhoods throughout the borough.  If you are seeking the chance to help connect others to valuable resources and play an important role in strengthening the community...become a Friend.
