The Queens Library is organizing a trip to Albany to ensure the borough is well represented on the state’s Annual Library Day, Feb. 27.
Each year, librarians and library customers head to the State Capitol to advocate for more funding and resources.
“Our customers are our best advocates. We’ll be going to Albany to speak up about issues faced by community libraries, and you’re invited,” Queens Library said in a statement.
Buses will depart from Central Library on Merrick Boulevard in Jamaica, Flushing Library on Main Street in Flushing and Peninsula Library on Rockaway Beach Boulevard in Rockaway Beach early in the morning of Feb. 27.
Bus seats fill up quickly on a first come, first served basis and the Queens Library recommends registering as soon as possible. Individuals selected to attend the day of advocacy will be notified by Feb. 8.
Registration is open at QueensLibrary.org
