A Message from Dennis M. Walcott, President and CEO of Queens Library

Dear Friend,

Queens Library changes lives and strengthens communities by bringing together people of all ages, circumstances, and backgrounds to share experiences, learn, discover, and thrive. That’s why I ask you to consider joining me in supporting Queens Library on this very special evening. Our 62 libraries serve more than 2.3 million residents, and your support directly benefits the many children, adults and families who rely on our innovative programs and services.

The evening will recognize our three Gala honorees:

  • Patricia E. Harris, Chief Executive Officer of Bloomberg Philanthropies, where she continues to advance the passionate commitment to our city that she demonstrated during her tenure as First Deputy Mayor of the City of New York;
  • Bank of America, for their enduring support of Queens Library and their outstanding commitment to community development in Queens and throughout the City; and
  • Lester W. Young, Jr., Ed. D., who has influenced and enriched the lives of thousands of students as Regent At Large of The University of the State of New York and as a lifelong educator and innovator.

If you are unable to join us, I hope you will consider making a contribution or taking an ad in our digital journal to help make our work possible. Please click here for additional information or to lend your support.

Thank you for your consideration, and I hope to celebrate with you on October 17th.


Dennis M. Walcott
President and CEO
