Don’t bother digging through your wallet and dusting off your library card just yet.
The new Elmhurst branch of the Queens Library, located at 86-01 Broadway, will not open this year, as previously reported.
Instead, the building, which is still under construction, is scheduled to be completed next spring.
When ground was broken on the new 30,000-square-foot structure in 2011, an original tentative opening date of 2013 was given.
Last year, it was reported that the $27.8 million library would open in 2014.
While a sign at the construction site says the Elmhurst branch will open in November 2014, replacing the crossed-out date of 2013, Queens Library spokeswoman Jennifer Manley confirmed Wednesday the building will not be completed until next spring.
“Construction is moving along and good progress has been made,” Manley said in an email. “The exterior envelope and major infrastructure [has been] completed. The target for construction to be substantially complete is spring 2015.”
