The Glendale Library will temporarily relocate to this storefront (with the green awning) starting on May 24 during the 18-month renovation to its home building.

With renovations underway at the Glendale Library, the Queens Borough Public Library will welcome the community to the branch’s temporary location at the nearby Shops at Atlas Park next week.

The library announced that the grand opening festivities will take place on May 24 from 1 to 4 p.m., with the library officially opening to the public at 3 p.m. The event will include crafts, story time, giveaways and the discovery team from the Children’s Library Discovery Center. Those who attend will also have the chance to sign up to support the library in its advocacy efforts.

The temporary location fills the needs of the community during the 18-month closure of the library’s historic main building on 73rd Place and Myrtle Avenue for renovations.

The library will take over a vacant, 1,409-square-foot storefront in Atlas Park in between Claire’s and Gymboree on the ground floor, and it will be open six days a week during the following hours:

  • Monday from noon to 8 p.m.
  • Tuesday from 1 to 6 p.m.
  • Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
  • Thursday from noon to 8 p.m.
  • Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
  • Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Available resources at the temporary library will include 5,500 items (such as books, periodicals and DVDs), a self-checkout machine, six computers and WiFi, outdoor children’s programming and free parking for up to one hour.
