Vilma Raquel Daza, 2017

Vilma Raquel Daza

Community Library Manager, Corona Branch, Queens Borough Public Library.

"I've been working in the Queens Library system for 30 years. I have never met a more passionate, driven, and dedicated individual."

Vilma Daza and her staff of 9 full-time employees serve over 18,000 library patrons at the Corona Branch Library each month, making it the busiest library per square foot in all of Queens. As an immigrant to New York from Peru, Daza knows firsthand what an important lifeline a library can be and she has made the Library "the central educational and resource hub of Corona." Residents line up around the block to register for a wide arrange of classes; in the summer, programs are offered outdoors in the plaza; and Daza and staff volunteer their time to keep the library open in the morning and evening, beyond regular hours. A colleague notes, "I've been working in the Queens Library system for 30 years. I have never met a more passionate, driven, and dedicated individual."
