Taking Refuge at the Library

Residents without power found a place to relax and "recharge" this weekend at the library.

It has been a long week for many. After Hurricane Sandy came through, leaving the townsip in the dark, many have had little in the way of commnication with the outside world.

So when power was restored to the East Brunswick Public Library on Saturday, residents came to take advantage of its free WiFi, computers, places to sit and to charge their phones and electronics.

There were still several thousand people in East Brunswick without power on Sunday evening. The library will be open all week from 1 to 9 p.m. Computers and WiFi are free, so come by.

I cannot tell you how impressed I am with the care that the library has given to its residents during this week. Cushy chairs and tables have been placed throughout the area, along with several plugs and extension cords..not to mention the free wifi if you were able to get in.

For those of you still without electric or gas like at my place, kudos and a heartfelt thanks goes out to the East Brunswick High School for providing free showers, free internet and tv, a warm cafeteria area with cots, and water...And an even bigger thanks and gratitude to St. Mary's Coptic Orthodox Church's volunteers for the much-needed and delicious and home-made chicken soup, the various Dunkin donuts, the hot chocolate. It really gave me and others a little feeling of much-needed warmth and home in this time of uncertainty. Thank you for your generousity!!!!
