Brigantine Library reopens for the first time since Sandy

BRIGANTINE -

After nearly a year, the doors to one shore town's public library finally reopened Wednesday.

The Brigantine Public Library suffered serious flood damage when Hurricane Sandy swept through, significantly damaging the elevator equipment. Over the last 11 months, while repairs were being made, the librarians brought boxes of books to a temporary space at the community center.

"I think that that was one of the most painful aspects of this, for about a month we weren't able to deliver library services to our wonderful patron base in Brigantine. And I think that really was the biggest source of heartbreak for me," said branch manager Beth Bliss.

Wednesday NJ Hope and Healing surprised the librarians by helping to celebrate the reopening of the library with gifts, a scrapbook, and massages for the librarians.
