BROOKLYN - The Gerritsen Beach Library is turning the page on its recovery from Superstorm Sandy.

The Brooklyn Public Library branch on Gerritsen Avenue is finally reopening, nearly a year after being shuttered by the storm.

The library suffered significant damage and flooding last October, requiring $1.6 million in repairs. It was funded by the AIG Disaster Relief Fund and the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City.

It’s one of six Brooklyn branches affected by Sandy. Four reopened earlier this year, and the Coney Island Library Branch is expected to open its doors again next month.
