Is there an equivalent Calc function for the Google Sheets function "QUERY"?

Probably not - though you may want to look at Calc's "database functions". (That's the database functions in Calc, not LibreOffice's database functionality, Base.) See the help text for functions such as DGET().

When I downloaded my spreadsheet from Google Sheets as a Calc file, the "QUERY" function was not translated into an equivalent Calc function. My original Google Sheets function is:"=QUERY('NBBP Address Book'!B2:B52)"

It references a list of names in another sheet called "NBBP Address Book" and shows the list in a column on the first sheet ...

You probably don't need QUERY to do that. Just construct the formula
='NBBP Address Book'.B2:B52
but instead of clicking the green tick mark or pressing Enter, press Ctrl+Shift+Enter. The formula will be surrounded by braces (but note that you cannot simply type these yourself) and will become an array formula with similar results.

I trust this helps.
