Small Folk Story Hour

At the Self-Taught Genius Gallery

Co-organized with the Queens Library at Court Square, this program for pre-k and elementary school-aged small folk will feature a New York–themed story selected from the stacks of the Queens Library. Following the reading, museum educator Nicole Haroutunian will lead a family-friendly tour of the artworks on view.

As a special addition to this program, the Queens Library Bookcycle will be on site to issue new library cards and check out a special selection of books to Story Hour participants.

The Queens Library serves 2.3 million people from 62 locations plus seven Adult Learning Centers and two Family Literacy Centers. It circulates among the highest numbers of books and other library materials in the country. The Queens Library at Court Square is located at 25-01 Jackson Avenue, Long Island City, NY.
