The Sunnyside branch of the Queens Public Library will reopen Thursday following its closure for construction.

The library, located at 43-06 Greenpoint Ave., will reopen after it shut down Nov. 5 in order for the entrance to be revamped to make it ADA compliant and accessible to all customers. The work involved building a ramp and installing new doors.

The branch will offer to-go service, one of 36 QPL locations to offer the service.

Customers, with to-go service, are able to request materials in advance either online or via the QPL app. They can also call in their requests at 718-990-0728. Patrons can then pick up materials at the branch.

No browsing is permitted under the to-go model and the computers will not be available. Face masks are required inside the library and customers must stay at least six feet apart from other people.

The 24/7 returns at the Sunnyside branch are currently operational, and customers may start making requests for materials.

The hours at the branch will be:

10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday (with a one-hour closure from 1 to 2 p.m. for cleaning);

1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesday;

12 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursday (with a one-hour closure from 3 to 4 p.m. for cleaning).

Five Months

It took them five months to install a door. I’m having a hard time believing that any contractor is that incompetent. Why can’t the city get better performance from its contractors?
