E-mail Print PDF

The British vocal group The Mediæval Bæbes enchanted a crowd of more than 350 at Monmouth County Library Headquarters in Manalapan on October 3 and helped raise $1,845 for Superstorm Sandy recovery efforts.

The proceeds from the Library's Concert for the Renaissance of the Jersey Shore will go directly to the Monmouth County Long-Term Recovery Group.

"We are very thankful for the incredible work that is still being done to help victims of Sandy by the many volunteer groups, like the Monmouth County Long Term Recovery Group. Without their tireless efforts, many residents here would be completely without hope," said Freeholder Lillian G. Burry, Library Liaison, who attended the concert.

Branch Managers with NJLA checks

New Jersey Library Association officials presented checks of $1,942 each to three Monmouth County libraries damaged in Superstorm Sandy: Oceanport, Sea Bright and Monmouth Beach.

In a ceremony at the Oceanport Library on Wednesday, Sept. 25, NJLA executive director Patricia Tumulty and NJLA president Eileen Palmer gave the checks to Monmouth County Library officials, including Freeholder Lillian G. Burry, Library liaison, and Monmouth County Library Commission Chair Renee B. Swartz.
"We are touched by all the people who donated to our libraries damaged by Sandy, and we thank them for their generosity," said Freeholder Burry. "We all know how much the residents in Sea Bright, Monmouth Beach and Oceanport value their libraries, and the money will be put to good use."

First Patron at Oceanport

The Oceanport branch of the Monmouth County Library reopened on Monday, July 1, eight months after sustaining extensive flood damage during Superstorm Sandy.

"The Monmouth County Library Commission is pleased that the Oceanport branch will be back up and running after suffering such a devastating blow last October in Superstorm Sandy," said Renee B. Swartz, chair of the Library Commission. "We know the library plays a vital part in the Oceanport community and residents have missed their library terribly."

Library patrons can check out books and DVDS and pick up their holds at the refurbished library. Children's story times will also resume the week of July 1.

The branch will begin its usual hours on July 1. The library is open 1 to 5 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. In addition it is open 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays and Thursdays, and 9 a.m. to noon on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The new branch manager will be Katie Kenny.

"The Board of Freeholders would like to thank the officials of Oceanport for their tireless efforts to help put the Oceanport branch back together physically, and also thank the residents of Oceanport for their patience in waiting to get their library back." said Freeholder Lillian G. Burry, liaison to the Library. "We are glad that this reminder of Sandy's devastation in the area has finally been rectified."
