Ocean County Library Holds Hurricane Recovery Expos

Expo at Little Egg Harbor

Acknowledging the one year anniversary of Super Storm Sandy, Ocean County Library held Beyond Sandy: A Resources Expo at the Brick (November 7) and Little Egg Harbor (November 13) branches.

According to the New Jersey State Taxation Division, the storm did over $4.3 billion in property damage in our state alone.

Area residents are still moving working to move forward from the devastation caused by last years catastrophic storm. These resource expos gave community members a chance to not only get information but to connect with representatives from several different government agencies and non-profit organizations that can offer assistance.

Attendees received information on a variety of topics including how to avoid scams, elevation assistance and coping with mental stress and depression as a result of the storm. To help our customers, Ocean County Library has been regularly hosting these expos since December 2012.
