A Queens Library branch is getting a big makeover.
City officials announced renovation plans for the Bay Terrace library Thursday. It will have new children's section, self-check in and check out services, along with a new roof. The branch opened in 1981.
The entire project will cost $4.1 million.
City Councilman Paul Vallone and Borough President Melinda Katz helped fund the redesign. Both said that the renovation is long overdue.
“The Bay Terrace community has been needing this for decades, and it's sad that it took this long,” said Vallone.
“This is will be one of the projects that I know, for generations, folks will be very proud of us,” added Katz.
There is no word yet on when the work will begin.
