Bridgewater, NJ. November 8, 2012. – The Somerset County Library System (SCLS) is stepping up once again to help communities in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Recognizing that New Jersey Shore communities have been particularly hit hard by the super storm, residents are asked to make a contribution at any of the 10 library branches beginning on Friday, November 9 of the following items:
- · Baby wipes
- · Batteries
- · Bottled water
- · Disposable diapers
- · Flashlights
“We’ve been able to help our Somerset County neighbors since the storm has passed by providing a safe, warm environment for patrons to recharge their mobile devices and get connected to vital information. But we can stretch a little to help our New Jersey communities that have been so very badly devastated and for whom the recovery time will go on for considerable time, by giving them items that they can use immediately,” noted Edward Hoag, Hillsborough Library Director and coordinator of this donation effort.
Collection spots will be clearly marked at each of the SCLS branches throughout Somerset County.
Patrons with further questions can call SCLS at (908) 526-4016 or visit the website at http://www.sclsnj.org. The Somerset County Library System has branches in Bridgewater, Bound Brook, Hillsborough, Manville, at the Mary Jacobs Library in Rocky Hill, North Plainfield, Peapack & Gladstone, Somerville, Warren Township and Watchung.
