Little Egg Harbor Library Branch Closed for Electrical System Overhaul

Oct 16, 2019

The Little Egg Harbor branch of the Ocean County Library is currently closed for electrical repairs. Kate Sanchez, library system public relations supervisor, said the repairs are the result of a power surge from an Atlantic City Electric transformer located on the perimeter of Mathistown Road on Oct. 14.

“It happened around 11 p.m.,” she said. “The surge knocked out the electrical system, and it has to be completely replaced. Our maintenance team and electricians are on site to address the issue.”

She said all holds will be available for pickup at the Stafford branch in Manahawkin and will be extended four days. Alternatively, customers may call and request their holds be sent to their branch of choice.

“People can still borrow materials from any other branch,” Sanchez said. “The Tuckerton branch is the closest, about 3 miles away. We hope to have the Little Egg branch reopened in a month.”
