The Queens Central Library branch, at 89-11 Merrick Boulevard in Jamaica, just opened a brand new teen section. The 4,000-square-foot space features a video game lounge, a multimedia room featuring computers with editing software, a quiet room, two conference rooms and a study area. The area fits about 600 teenagers. There are three game consoles — PS3, Xbox and Nintendo Wii — and the library selected games with educational or fitness value. DNAinfo reports that this is part of a larger, $10,000,000 branch renovation which includes a cafe, new computer center and an expanded media center. Most of those renovations will wrap at the end of this year.
