Librarians and Henry Inman staff members will offer some library services including new materials to circulate from the Evergreen Senior Center beginning October 8th from 10 am – 2 pm. The Henry Inman Branch in Colonia has been closed since September 1 due to flood damage sustained during Tropical Storm Ida.
"We are grateful to the Township Department of Public Works for their quick response, the Evergreen Senior Center for allowing us a location to maintain some library services to Colonia and to all of the library patrons who have called to offer their time to help with the recovery efforts," said Library Board President Isha Vyas.
The losses, which include all of the floors, four feet of wallboard around the building, some of the furnishings, shelves and more than 3,000 books, will require that the library be closed to the public until 2022.
The Library Board of Trustees invites Colonia residents and all regular Henry Inman library visitors to use other WPL branches during this time. The Main Library is located at 1 George Frederick Plaza in Woodbridge, the Iselin Branch, 1081 Green Street in Iselin, and the Fords Branch Library, 211 Ford Avenue. Woodbridge Township Library cards are valid in more than 50 area libraries in the MURAL system in Middlesex and Union County, as well.
