CONEY ISLAND - Several Brooklyn libraries remain shuttered nearly two months after Superstorm Sandy hit.

Brooklyn Public Library officials say six branches were damaged when Sandy hit. Some were flooded, others had structural damage and many books were lost.

Officials estimate repairs will cost about $10 million and haven't given a date as to when all the libraries will be repaired.

Mobile libraries have been set up through the borough to help with the loss, but neighbors say it's not enough.
