Glen Oaks Library To Celebrate Revamp With Grand Opening Party

Image converted using ifftoany

The new, snazzy Glen Oaks Library opened to the public over the summer, but it will celebrate the grand opening on Tuesday, September 3rd. Government and community leaders plan to come together to ceremonially open the new space on Tuesday, then the library will host a free children’s carnival in honor of the reopening on Wednesday, September 4th. Queens Mamas just posted some great interior photos of the three-story building, which features a sky-lit reading lounge, outdoor reading space, and a dedicated teen area. Outside, there’s a 24/7 self-service check in. This $17,100,000 million project took more than three years to build.

  • My old hood! The old library was certainly adequate but this one looks great, too. Although I think it may look a bit out of place on the outside, what lies beneath is most important.
