WEST LONG BRANCH LIBRARY CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

The Library and adjacent Municipal building has been closed by order of the Fire Marshall as a result of an unanticipated accident. A water line in the vacant municipal building burst and caused water damage to the building and its electrical system. As a result of conditions in the building, an electrical surge caused a fire in a second story office.

The water service to the building has been shut off pending repairs, although emergency work has been initiated. The compromised electrical system caused damage to the fire alarm system in the Library. Currently, we have contractors working on the electrical, fire, water and boiler systems in the building. A new fire alarm system is being installed at the Library.

Until the alarm system is operational, and heat restored, it would be unsafe to allow patrons or staff to inhabit the Library.

The timing of a re-opening for the Library is difficult to determine and will depend on progress of the aforementioned work being accomplished. The Fire Marshall and Construction Official will make inspections of all work and shall make a determination on the safety of the buildings before they are cleared for resumption of service.

An imprecise estimate, pending the factors enumerated above, may be mid February 2015.

The Borough is working with all possible speed, and with utmost attention to the safety of our residents and patrons of the Library to restore normal operations as quickly as possible.

Victor Cantillo,
Administrator
Borough of West Long Branch
