After days of being closed due to the wrath of Hurricane Sandy, The East Meadow Public Library reopened on Friday for residents.
On Monday morning, the library was filled with patrons, charging electronics and enjoying the warmth of the building.
The Long Island Power Authority said that as of Monday morning, more than in East Meadow were still without power.
"It feels good to be open," Assistant Director Rocco Cassano said. " People are coming to us for charging stations and a warm place to sit."
The library offered patrons coffee, waived all recent fees and canceled programs so residents can use the building's rooms as charging stations.
"It's great that we see people who are happy to just have some heat," Director Carol Probeyahn.
Though it was open, the library suffered some damage due to Sandy.
"Our front doors are gone and we lost our bench outside," Cassano said. "But we are fortunate to be able to open."
The library will be running on its regular hours.
