Hard-hit Queens area is getting temporary library

A hard-hit area of Queens is getting a temporary library — set on blocks in the sand.

The permanent Queens Library at Arverne was badly damaged by superstorm Sandy.

On Friday, a double-wide trailer is being set up next to the library.

It's expected to open to the public by Monday.
