Please send your pictures of the week to

Rocky the Raccoon takes shelter at the Queens Library at Baisley Park after Hurricane Sandy. Children who visit the library named him, made him a home, and read to him through the window glass of the library’s atrium.


The Queens Library  Far Rockaway branch opened to provide emergency supplies to the community, as well as information on applying for grants and resources.


The Mobile Library, parked in the Rockaways, was a haven for many without heat or light.
