The Queens Library at Glen Oaks is moving to its brand-new building later this month.

The library at 256-04 Union Turnpike will open to the public in the third week of May.

The new facility — an 18,000-square-foot building with three levels — has separate library space for adults, children and teens with computer workstations in every area. It features a beautiful sky-lit reading lounge, two meeting and program rooms, 24/7 self-check-in kiosks, an outdoor program area and is fully handicapped-accessible.

The temporary library, located at 255-01 Union Turnpike, will close at the end of business on Friday in order to facilitate the move.

Customers are invited to use any of the Queens Library’s nearby locations at 250-06 Hillside Ave. in Bellerose or 79-50 Bell Blvd. in Windsor Park.

The project was funded through allocations made by Mayor Bloomberg and Councilman Mark Weprin.

Welcome to the discussion.
