After months of public outcry, Sea Bright’s public library is back on track toward reopening and it may get an assist from the Lincroft library, which was shuttered due to budget cuts earlier this year.
The Sea Bright borough council gave the okay to Tuesday night to repair its Ocean Avenue facility, closed since it was battered by Hurricane Sandy.
The status of the library has been up in the air since the October 29 storm, and the borough even tossed around the idea of creating a new library, housed inside a new beach pavilion building. But Councilman Read Murphy confirmed the council had unanimously decided to repair the beach side communitys library.
As the rumor goes, and as I said the other night, we are going to repair the library, Murphy told those in attendance at a meeting of the borough council. Were going to out for bid on the property. We have approximately $70,000 to work with here.”
