Ryder Library Closing Until December

[UPDATE 10/14/11] A reader confirmed yesterday that the library is still open. We’re guessing they just hung the sign to give everyone a heads up about it closing on November 4.

Reader Grace O. happened by the above sign, which was posted on the gate of the Brooklyn Public Library’s Ryder Branch yesterday.

According to Brooklyn Public Library’s website, the library is expected to reopen December 12, after receiving technological upgrading – including some do-it-yourself checkout scanners.

Curiously, the website also says the library isn’t supposed to close until November 4.

Anyone know if they will be losing staff?
