UPPER WEST SIDE — Upper West Siders who rely on the Bloomingdale Library as an air-conditioned summer oasis will have to look elsewhere for the next six weeks.

The New York Public Library branch at West 100th Street and Columbus Avenue closed its doors Monday to undergo a renovation project that includes installing new windows, library representatives said. It is scheduled to reopen Aug. 26.

Nearby public library alternatives include St. Agnes Library at West 81st Street and Amsterdam Avenue and Morningside Heights Library at West 113th Street and Broadway.

Bloomingdale’s outdoor drop box can still be used to return books, but holds will be rerouted to the Morningside Heights branch.
