Hurricane Sandy

Like everyone else in our region we are deeply concerned about how Hurricane Sandy has hurt the people in the community.  We as members of the Friends group and just people who care about our fellow neighbors have been involved in many volunteer efforts and are also proud to support all initiatives to help.   This page on the BPL website will be regularly updated with information, needed supplies and efforts to assist

Please see the information above about how you can donate supplies and what to bring to the Carroll Gardens library beginning Thursday, November 8.

The Brooklyn Public Library has been collecting and distributing supplies with their mobile book units for several days, bringing needed items, books for children and also serving as charging stations for electronics.

When the Carroll Gardens library was a voting site on Election Day, community members capitalized on long lines to organize a wonderfully successful bake sale to raise funds for local relief and recovery efforts - they raised more than $2,000!

Neighborhoods close to Carroll Gardens like Red Hook and Gowanus, and places much further away like Staten Island, Rockaway, Coney Island and New Jersey are in our thoughts.  We'll continue to post   information and ways to help as they arise.
