Queens Public Library is reopening its Ozone Park branch on Tuesday, Aug. 2, at 1 p.m. for full service for the first time in more than two years. 

We are thrilled to reopen our Ozone Park location for full service for the first time in more than two years,” a QPL spokesperson said. “We know the public has been eagerly awaiting its reopening, and we are truly excited to welcome and serve them once again.” 

The library, located at 92-24 Rockaway Blvd., first closed in March 2020 amid the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

In September and early October 2020, the library served as a coronavirus testing site. Later that month, it opened for to-go library service and served in that capacity until April 2021, when it became a city-operated COVID-19 vaccination site for nearly one year. 

The branch closed this past March for a recently completed roof replacement project. 

The library will be open six days a week, Monday through Saturday. 

The hours of operation will be:

  • Monday, Wednesday and Friday: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. 
  • Tuesday: 1 to 6 p.m.
  • Thursday: Noon to 8 p.m.
  • Saturday: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
