The Queens Library’s Lefferts branch at 103-34 Lefferts Blvd. in South Richmond Hill will close temporarily at the end of business on Saturday for about two months for installation of a new roof.
During the closure, limited service will be provided by the mobile library, the details of which will be announced soon, library spokeswoman Joanne King said.
Customers can also use the library’s other facilities nearby. The closest are the Richmond Hill branch at 118-14 Hillside Ave; the Ozone Park branch at 92-24 Rockaway Blvd., and the South Ozone Park branch at 128-16 Rockaway Blvd.
Funding for the $615,000 project was allocated by Councilman Ruben Wills (D-Jamaica) and the Queens Borough President’s Office.
The library is expected to reopen for public service by the end of September.
Several other Queens Library branches are also undergoing renovations, including Bellerose and Rosedale. The branches in Woodhaven and Ozone Park and the Central Library in Jamaica also had renovations done recently.
