Hunters Point Nighttime Construction

We will be making accessibility improvements to Hunters Point Library (47-40 Center Boulevard) beginning in late July. We will keep you informed of the start date.

The construction, which is expected to take one year, will occur at night while the branch is closed and will not affect our operating hours.

During the day, while we are open, certain areas may be closed to the public. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

For any questions about the construction project, send us an email at: hpconstruction@queenslibrary.org
