Superstorm Sandy Anniversary


  • One year ago, our region experienced the hurricane of a lifetime called Hurricane Sandy.
  • This satellite picture was taken by NOAA.  At its peak, the storm was 1000 miles wide!

  • We want to remind you that libraries can let us know if you need help during a future event.
    • MAR oversees an emergency preparedness and response plan to help members maintain their services in the event of a disaster
    • Call 1-800-DEV-ROKS (1-800-338-7657) to notify MAR if your library/institution is affected by a disaster or emergency
  • Last year, we maintained a set of notices on our website, compiling and updating news daily about regional libraries as time went by. We tried to do all we could to help libraries communicate with one another.
