Queens Library in Corona to hold 31 Hour Open House

June 1, 2017 By Jason Cohen

The Corona branch of the Queens Library will be hosting a 31-hour open house starting at 10 a.m. Friday, featuring a variety of activities for children and adults.

The event is part of the “Queens Library is for Everyone” campaign that aims to promote inclusivity throughout the borough. The library said that the campaign comes at a time “when many people feel vulnerable and afraid because of the political climate.”

In addition to regular library services, there will be immigration workshops and legal assistance, panel discussions, Zumba, mediation and yoga, Latin urban music experience, job counseling, pajama story time, author talks and much more.

According to the campaign’s website, “Queens Library is a safe space for all, no matter where you come from, who you love or what you believe. As the hub of every community across the borough and a place of opportunity, equity, and inspiration for all, we must make clear that Queens Library is here for everyone, regardless of immigration status, race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, religious beliefs, disability status, political persuasion or age.”
