Celebrate Women's History Month!

March is Women’s History Month, and Queens Library is excited to present a range of programs dedicated to the creativity and achievements of women throughout history. Join us for performances, art exhibits, film screenings, children’s crafts, and plenty more!

Also, we're posting pictures of noteworthy books by women writers to our social media sites every day! These 31 books will include literary classics, memoirs, children’s books, and more. And, in a new twist this year, we're letting YOU pick our final week of featured books!

Post a picture on Instagram of your favorite book by a woman author, using the hashtag #QLWHM. They can be all-time classics, or new books that are just so good, you can’t stop reading them!

The ones with the most likes will be considered for our final seven. Be sure to say why you think it should be included on our list!

You can see our choices by visiting this feature as well as checking out our Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram pages all month long.
