Library to Collect Storm Stories for Local History Archive

Bernardsville Public Library, which houses a large collection of local history archives, photos and memorabilia in the Edwin S. Spinning Local History Room, is now collecting stories from local residents about their experiences during Hurricane Sandy.  Given the massive impact of the storm on our community, these stories will be important to historians.  They will be compiled and saved for examination and reflection in the future, along with photographs of the devastation wrought by the storm.

To accomplish this, the library has created a special webpage,, from which residents can link to a blog to record their memories.  "We encourage residents to document their experiences during Hurricane Sandy--how it affected you, your family, your friends, and your town," said Library Director Karen Brodsky, "We would like to create an important record of the event."  To participate, please go to and click on the link in the yellow bar: “Tell us your storm stories here.”
