The Sunnyside library, located at 43-06 Greenpoint Ave., is going to be closed this summer in order for a new roof to be installed.
The library is expected to close on June 24 and to re-open mid-August. The exact timing, however, depends on the weather, according to a Joanne King, a spokeswoman for the Queens Library.
The Sunnyside library underwent a $2.3 million renovation at the end of 2009, which included interior and exterior improvements such as a new roof. The library was then reopened in January 2010. The reason why the library needed a new roof was unknown at the time of publication.
However, the Queens Library will be sending a mobile library to the branch location once per week. The time and day of the week have still yet to be determined.
Further details to come.
