Public Libraries in Nassau are Open for Business!

Post-Sandy Update

Nearly all public libraries in Nassau are up and running.  Libraries opened as soon as possible after Super Storm Sandy, providing warm places to charge cell phones and access the internet, programs and activities to keep children occupied and give adults a break from thinking about their losses, and public spaces for community members to get together.

NLS put together a list of sources of storm recovery assistance.  Library staff at your local library can assist you in finding other storm-related resources as well as provide other information and help you find library materials of interest. We have also included a list of storm recovery resources for businesses prepared by The Long Island Business News.

Three of our member public libraries sustained serious damage during Super Storm Sandy.  These libraries – East Rockaway, Island Park, and Long Beach – will likely remain closed for an extended time.
