The library will celebrate its reopening on Friday after a $1.36 million renovation following extensive damage from Superstorm Sandy nearly two years ago.
Four feet of water surged into the library during Sandy, ruining books, computers, electrical wiring and furniture.
The rebuilding money was funded by FEMA, the library’s insurance and grants, including one from the Turkish Cultural Center Queens. The library initially reopened for public service on March 18.
The reopening ceremony will feature many Queens dignitaries and a live DJ.
