Google donated 5,000 Nexus tablets to the Library after Superstorm Sandy devastated New York. “We hope that the residents of this borough will have access to the information and resources they need to strengthen their communities,” said William Floyd, head of external affairs for Google. With this donation, the Queens Library focused efforts toward developing software for patrons to experience and enjoy the library's resources in a whole new way.
