Queens Library’s Hollis branch will shut its door temporarily after business hours Sept. 12.
The closing is necessary to replace the roof of the library, at 202-05 Hillside Ave. The branch will reopen its doors sometime in November, said a Queens Library spokeswoman.
During the temporary closing, limited service will be provided by the mobile library every Monday from 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m.
In the meantime, customers are also invited to visit other library branches. For Hollis residents, the closest one is in Queens Village, at 94-11 217th St. And the library in Hillcrest, at 187-05 Union Turnpike, has 24-hour return service.
The installation of the new roof at the Hollis library branch is possible because of funding secured by City Councilman Mark Weprin (D-Oakland Gardens), said the spokeswoman.
