The New Utrecht branch of the Brooklyn Public Library will reopen today after more than a month of being closed.

Located at 1743 86th Street, the branch has been temporarily closed for renovations and “customer service enhancements” since January 18.

A representative from the New Utrecht branch said that the renovated library will have a new learning space and 70 new computers, among other new accommodations, including self-checkout machines.

The library will be open until 8 p.m. this evening.

Correction: The original version of this report said that the renovation included a new learning space and 70 new computers, based on information provided to us by a library rep. Actually, those improvements were made at Brooklyn Public Library’s Central branch, not at the local branch, and the article above has been changed to reflect that.
