From our Lunar New Year Festival to our teen movie-makers club, there’s plenty to discover, enjoy, and celebrate at Queens Library this month. You don’t have to take our word for it.

Have you visited the Children’s Library Discovery Center yet? Every day at the Center – open during Queens Library at Central’s regular hours of operation (weekdays and weekends) – is a little different, but kids and their caregivers can always expect to find great opportunities for learning about science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. So drop by when you can and you just may find our Discovery Team showing off science exhibits, inviting visitors to explore nanotechnology and kitchen chemistry, or working with a group of students to categorize insects and dinosaurs. Or, as we did on a recent day – see the cool picture above – we may be giving kids the chance to experience real-world experiments, such as conducting their very own crime-scene investigation!
