About Us

The Library is the heart of the BHSEC Queens scholarly and creative community. It is both a classic library that reveres great literature, and an innovative library that embraces new information technology. It is both a quiet place in which independent study is valued, and a vibrant place where conversation and collaboration flourish. The librarian teaches and co-teaches research units across all academic disciplines, preparing students to conduct college-level research. The Library also hosts the Learning Center tutoring program daily, and author readings monthly.
