Nick Buron

Nick Buron was named Queens Public Library’s Chief Librarian in 2016, overseeing public library service at each of the Library’s 66 locations. He leads a 700-person team that is responsible for the Library’s collections, programming, outreach, and customer experience.

Nick joined Queens Public Library in 1993 as a librarian trainee at Woodside Community Library and later assumed management positions at several libraries throughout the system. These sites include the former Queensbridge branch, which the Library recently converted into a technology lab for residents. 

In between, Nick rose to the highest ranks of the organization. In these roles, he drove the growth of the Library’s programmatic offerings and attendance to unprecedented levels. He also brought Universal Pre-K to the Library’s literacy center at the Ravenswood Houses in Long Island City and to Woodhaven Community Library.

Born and raised in Queens, Nick currently lives in the Middle Village section of the borough. He earned a Master of Library Science from the State University of New York at Buffalo and a Bachelor of Arts in History from the State University of New York at Albany.
