The Queens County Library had a circulation of 23 million in 2009.
The Queens County Library is almost completely taxpayer funded by every NYC taxpayer.
The Queens County Library offers a plastic bag to each person checking out a book, CD or DVD.
The other libraries in NYC do not give out plastic bags.
