Quick Changes For Far Rockaway Library
Fourteen Queens Library locations will be converted to RFID check-in and check-out over the next couple of months. All work will be done over weekends. Two locations, Queens Library at Fresh Meadows and Queens Library at Far Rockaway, will be closed for one Saturday each to permit the work to be completed.
Queens Library at Fresh Meadows, 193-20 Horace Harding Expressway, will be closed on Saturday, January 21 only. Queens Library at Far Rockaway, 1637 Central Avenue, will be closed on Saturday, January 28 only. Both locations will resume regular business hours on the following Mondays.
Other libraries that will be converted within their regular public service schedules are those at Mitchell-Linden, Richmond Hill, Lefrak City, North Forest Park, South Ozone Park, Queens Village, Glendale, Astoria, Hollis, Howard Beach, Whitestone, and North Hills.
RFID check-in and check-out is faster and more accurate than the old bar-code readers and paves the way for self-service check-in and check-out, to be installed at a later date.
