About Queens Memory Project
Queens Memory is an ongoing community archiving program supported by Queens Public Library and Queens College, CUNY. They engage with Queens residents in our two-fold mission to (1) push local history collections out to the public through programming and online resources, and (2) pull new materials into their collections from the diverse communities of Queens. The goal is to raise awareness and a sense of ownership in the production of our shared historic record and their dream is that any Queens resident who visits these collections feels their experiences and perspective are represented.
