The Queensboro Hill branch of the Queens Public Library, at 60-05 Main St. in Flushing, will close Feb. 24 for renovations that are not set to be completed for about a year.
In the spring of 2013, construction is set to be completed that will feature a new, handicap-accessible front facade, new handicap-accessible restrooms, a new lobby with lounge seats, self-check-out machines and 24-hour check-in capabilities, according to the library.
In late March, limited library service will be provided by a book bus. Otherwise, residents can use nearby libraries such as the Queens Library at Flushing, at 41-17 Main St.; Queens Library at Fresh Meadows, at 193-20 Horace Harding Expwy.; or Queens Library at Pomonok, at 158-21 Jewel Ave., to check out books.
