Five Brooklyn libraries hit hard by Sandy still closed –  and will cost $10 million for building repairs and books

“Five Brooklyn libraries severely damaged by Sandy are still shuttered nearly a month after the storm – and will cost unprecedented millions to get back up and running. “We were hurt,” said Brooklyn Public Library VP of strategic planning Jeanette Moy. “But we are leveraging every asset we have and every partnership that’s possible to bring services back to the community.” The repairs will cost an estimated $10 million in total, BPL officials said. That includes massive structural repairs and replacing 75,852 books, magazines and DVDs that were ruined by flood waters.”
