SUMMER PROGRAMS 2017
Enjoy summer with Queens Library!
Whether you’re a kid or an adult, you don’t need to be a victim of the summer slump. Keep your head in the game by writing an entry for the Summer Poetry Contest, rocking out at the Battle of the Bands, or using Scratch to learn coding. Plus, kids and teens can enjoy free nutritious meals. No matter what your interests are, you’ll find something to love at Queens Library.
Be inspired and build a better world! We’ve got book lists and events to achieve your reading goals all summer long! Summer Reading is open to all ages.
Can you rhyme? Know what a haiku is? Then enter the Summer Poetry Contest 2017 for a chance to be published in Queens Library Magazine! There are four different age categories, and the theme is Build a Better World. Enter now through July 31, 2017.
Make this summer unforgettable with Central Library’s Culture Connection. Culture Connection provides celebrated programming from the world of music, publishing, theater, film and much more to Queens, showcasing the work of emerging artists and renowned masters.
The Battle of the Bands is back and better than ever. For the third year running, New York bands will have the opportunity to bring the house down at the 2,100-seat Colden Auditorium at Queens College’s Kupferberg Center for the Arts.
