RED HOOK - The Red Hook branch of the Brooklyn Public Library has reopened for the first time since Superstorm Sandy.

The building on Wolcott Street was severely damaged by floodwaters after the storm struck in late October last year. Repair costs totaled close to $750,000.

Library officials say that a majority of the library had to be renovated.

Officials say they plan to close the library next year to complete more renovations and create a studio space to be run by local artists.
