Giving

Queens College Library is not currently accepting new donations of materials.

The Library welcomes financial donations, which can be made at the Borrowing Desk or online. Those who donate $50 or more receive borrowing privileges for six months. Please contact the Borrowing Desk for details.

Bouquet of Books directly funds new book acquisitions, and is also a wonderful way to honor or remember a family member, a colleague, or a friend. Donors may choose a subject area for the books they donate, and the gift will be noted in the library catalog.

For information on endowments, bequests, and naming opportunities, please contact the Queens College Foundation, or call 718-997-3920.

Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Queens College Libraries sponsors cultural events for the QC community and raises funds for the Queens College Library.

Past events have honored a wide range of musical, cultural, and and literary figures, including Tennessee Williams, Bessie Smith, Mozart, Rogers and Hammerstein, William Faulkner, and George Balanchine.

Over the years the Friends have provided endowments to the Library and funded a variety of special projects, from textbooks and computers to the preservation of historic materials, like the Ford Theatre playbill from the night of President Lincoln’s assassination, and the Hallum will of 1759. Membership is open to all at two levels:

  • Life: $500 (includes continuing library borrowing privileges)
