The Flushing Community Library is the largest in the Queens system and the busiest in the country, with over 5,000 visitors per day. The latest move in library technology is towards RFID tags, which make the tracking and lending of books more stream- lined than ever before. Queens Library has been implementing these systems in their buildings to keep up with their ever-increasing circulation. This project involved the installation of new customer service modules in the Flushing Library, which included new RFID stations throughout the multi-story building. Additionally, a new cyber center was constructed on the second floor with 40 workstations for public use. A new “Young Adult” area was also added to the second floor to recognize the increasing demand of library and media services by teenagers.
