Bayside bookworms reveled in the reopening of their new library on July 20 with balloon animals and face painting.
The afternoon-long affair celebrated the completion of a $1.3 million project to renovate the Bayside branch of the Queens Library at 214-20 Northern Boulevard.
The complete interior makeover, funded by city and borough leaders, now includes a new self-service check-out station, separate areas for adults, teens and children, full handicap accessibility, and bright new decor at the 10,300-square-foot public library, officials said.
The branch closed late last December and reopened in June.
