A beloved Queens librarian passed away unexpectedly earlier this month, the Queens Public Library announced Thursday.

Susan Scatena, also known as Miss Susan, worked as a children’s librarian at the Whitestone Library—located at 151-10 14th Road—for nearly two decades before she passed away on Jan. 10.

“During the 18 years she served the Whitestone community, Susan became an institution because of her creativity, thoughtfulness and total devotion to children,” said Dennis Walcott, president of the Queens Public Library.
