The West Farms branch of the New York Public Library, at 2085 Honeywell Ave. (between E. 179th and 180th Streets), is being closed for four months while construction crews replace all of the building's windows, according to a library spokesman. The current windows are “old and not energy-efficient,” he said.
The local branch shut down July 1 and won't open its doors again until Monday, Nov. 1. In the meantime, patrons can pick up items at the Tremont Branch, at 1866 Washington Ave., which will be housing the library's reserve collection. They can also use the nearby Belmont Library, located at 610 E. 186th St.
