Hollis library to temporarily close for roof replacement

By Juan Soto

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.
