Engineering contracts awarded for library repairs; Doran firm returns to the fold Engineering contracts awarded for library repairs; Doran firm returns to the fold BRIGANTINE- The Brigantine branch of the Atlantic County Library System is still recovering as repairs continue to fix damage from Superstorm Sandy, and from when a car crashed into it last fall.

When a car failed to make the turn at 14th and Revere on Oct. 30 and plowed into the front steps, the main entrance was effectively closed.  Because the county library is in a  city-owned building – the old Central School building – the city is responsible for repairs.  While most of the Sandy repairs have been completed, the meeting room still requires work.
