This Women’s History Month, Queens Library is excited to explore the impact of women scientists on fields as far ranging as astronomy, chemistry, biology, physics, and so many more.

Join us at our local libraries to meet inspiring women working in science throughout New York City. You can hear them discuss their career paths and participate in hands-on workshops.
