Starting Monday, Sept. 8, the Children’s Room at the Queens Library’s Broadway branch in Long Island City will remain closed for four months as it undergoes renovations. An alternate children’s room will open on Sept. 15, but it will offer limited services.
The renovated Children’s Room will include more computers for children to use, brand new furniture, more space for librarians to attend to customers and a self-checkout station. The room will also feature a model train set that will circulate in the front of the room, suspended from overhead tracks.
While the Children’s Room remains closed, the rest of the Broadway library will stay open during the renovations.
