Since Sandy, Maplewood Library is Booming

With Hurricane Sandy knocking out power in most of Maplewood, the library has become a hotbed for people looking to recharge, get warm, and get out of the house.

Since Hurricane Sandy hit, the Maplewood Memorial Library main branch has been more packed than ever before.

"There was a line out the door this morning," said Teen Librarian Irene Langlois. 

Throughout the day on Wednesday, people of all ages were recharging phones and laptops, reading, resting and socializing.

In the afternoon, Mayor Vic DeLuca stopped by to give patrons a "verbal update" on the cleanup efforts throughout town, and on the power restoration situation.

The library will be open again Thursday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.

If anyone sees Bob Campbell please tell him that his friend Carol Guy is hoping he is doing well, uninjured and with home intact. I wish all of you a complete and speedy recovery from the hurricane. I have been to your charming town and know that the losses must be great, but your outstanding citizenry will work together to restore its beauty. Blessings, Carol Guy, Tulsa, Ok
