The Poppenhusen branch of the Queens Library system, located in the College Point neighborhood of Queens, was constructed in the early 1900s. A WPA photo shows the WPA sign and explains that “new copper sheeting for roof is another improvement provided for the College Point Branch of the Queens Library system by the WPA,” implying that other improvements were made as well.
