Bayside bookworms will soon have to get their literary fixes elsewhere.

The Bayside branch of the Queens Library, located at 214-20 Northern Boulevard, will close on December 29 to begin its $1.3 million renovation project, officials said.

The complete interior makeover, funded by city and borough leaders, includes the installation of a new self-service check-out station, separate areas for adults, teens and children, full handicap accessibility, and a “bright new décor” at the 10,300 square-foot public library, said library officials.

It is expected to reopen in the summer of 2013.

A mobile library will provide limited service at the front of the Bayside branch during construction. Hours of service are available at www.queenslibrary.org.

Book lovers, in the interim, can also visit nearby branches, including East Flushing at 196-36 Northern Boulevard, Douglaston/Little Neck at 249-01 Northern Boulevard, and Bay Terrace at 18-36 Bell Boulevard.
