The Middle Village Library will close next week for about three months for interior maintenance work.

The library will close on Friday, Nov. 8 at 6 p.m. so that its HVAC system can be upgraded, according to a spokesperson for Queens Public Library.

The library is expected to reopen in February 2020.

The total cost of the system upgrade is approximately $1 million, with funds secured by the City Council and Mayor Bill de Blasio, the spokesperson said.

While the branch is closed, a mobile library service will be parked in front of the Middle Village Library located at 72-31 Metropolitan Ave. on Fridays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., starting Nov. 15.

Nearby libraries will also be open to serve Middle Village residents during the work including the North Forest Park Library at 98-27 Metropolitan Ave., the Glendale Library in the Atlas Park Mall at 8000 Cooper Ave. and the Maspeth Library at 69-70 Grand Ave.
