Bring Your Story: Visit A Queens Memory Hub Near You

In celebration of Immigrant Heritage Month, Queens Public Library will activate the scanning stations at 19 libraries to serve as Queens Memory Hubs. Customers are invited to bring photos and other historic materials that tell their family’s story of settling in the United States, and specifically in Queens. Library staff will help them scan their items and upload them through the Queens Memory Website for submission to the library’s local history collections. Every participant will take their scans home on a free Queens Memory flash drive along with information on how to add their family’s stories to the Queens Memory oral history collections. We are looking for photographs, event flyers, brochures, and other materials that tell the story of the lives families have built for themselves in the following neighborhoods:
