The return of six-day service at the Court Square Community Library, combined with reduced attendance at the Hunters Point mobile library during the winter months, led to the decision to relocate the mobile library.

We encourage customers to visit Court Square Library, at 25-01 Jackson Avenue in Long Island City, which is now open on Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
