Charge Your Devices at Local Libraries, Astoria Banks

Lost power? Head over to the library on Hempstead Avenue to recharge.

As thousands of area residents continue to cope with the loss of power to their homes from Hurricane Sandy, some local places that do have electricity are opening up their doors to let the "powerless" recharge.

The West Hempstead Public Library will be open Friday, Nov. 1, and Saturday, Nov. 2, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and on Sunday, Nov. 4, from noon - 5 p.m. Residents are welcomed to come in to recharge their devices' batteries.

The library, which is located on Hempstead Avenue, has Internet and heat. There will be a concert for adults at 2 p.m. on Sunday and crafts going on in the children's room.

The Malverne Public Library also has power and Internet, and will be open:

  • Saturday (11/3) 9:30 a.m. - 5 p.m.
  • Sunday (11/4) noon - 4 p.m.

The Lynbrook and Lakeview Public Libraries are open Monday to Saturday. Residents can come in to charge their devices.

Astoria Federal Savings Banks are also opening their doors to residents who need to charge their devices. Click here for more information.
