The annual gala is our largest fundraising event of the year, and this year’s virtual format offers a special opportunity to include an even wider audience. Especially during such a difficult year for so many, we’re reminded that Queens Public Library not only serves the public through books, arts and culture, job and career support, and educational programs, but QPL is integral to the overall health of our borough by providing cooling centers in the summer, COVID-19 testing sites, and now vaccination sites. For over a century, Queens Public Library has been dedicated to building resilience and unity in our communities, and we know our neighbors are counting on us now and for the years to come. We hope you will join us on June 8 and thank you for your continued support.
