Two Queens Library branches will close for a week to allow for some upgrades.
The branches at 98-30 57 Ave. in Lefrak City and 128-16 Rockaway Blvd. in South Ozone Park will close at the end of business on Friday.
Both will be closed for approximately one week while new 24/7 self-check-in and self-check-out kiosks are installed.
According to Queens Library spokeswoman Joanne King, the upgrades at South Ozone Park will cost approximately $200,000. That money was allocated by Queens Borough President Helen Marshall. The Lefrak City project will cost about $550,000, allocated by Councilman Danny Dromm (D-Jackson Heights), whose district included LeFrak City until this year.
The Queens Library is continually doing renovation projects at its branches, including recently complete renovations in Woodhaven, Fresh Meadows and the Central Library in Jamaica, upgrades in Glendale and East Flushing and a brand new library constructed at Mitchell-Linden in Flushing.
