Greening Western Queens

Building A More Sustainable Future For All Of Us

Through our Greening Libraries Initiative, Queens Library is providing environmental education and promoting environmental action in libraries throughout Western Queens.

Help Build A More Sustainable Future--

Visit our Astoria, Broadway, Long Island City, Steinway, Sunnyside and Woodside Community Libraries where you can find activities, books, and programs that show how you can contribute to a better environment in your community and workplace.

At your library, you can:

  • Enjoy programs and activities for children and families about composting, gardening, recycling and being environmentally friendly.
  • Locate other local community organizations working to improve our lives. 
  • Discover books and other resources and information about the environment not only in English, but also in Arabic, Bengali, Chinese, Korean and Spanish.
