Our Community Comes Together! Hurricane Ida Resources & Information

A big thank you to all of our first responders, volunteers, partner organizations and community members who are making great strides during this time of need. We are honored to be a hub of excellent citizenship and even received a visit from Governor Phil Murphy, who came to survey the damage around town. He concurred that “libraries rock” upon greeting our director, Jennifer Sirak, commenting on her t-shirt in a moment of levity surrounded by our leadership and a swarm of press.
The best place to gather information and find a host of resources is the City of Lambertville website. If you are not subscribed already, make sure you sign up for their updates via phone or email.
FEMA is in town until Sunday, 9/12. If you are unfamiliar with FEMA, and/or want to learn about what services they provide, check out this FEMA fact sheet.
For volunteerism and staying updated as to what’s happening on the ground. We recommend signing up through Losta Helping hands. They even have an app!
If assistance is needed in Spanish, Fisherman’s Mark – now located at Homestead Farm Market on N. Main Street – has a full time bilingual staff.
For permanent housing needs, contact Hunterdon County Social Services at (908)788-1300.
With information constantly changing, the best place to receive updates is through the city’s Hurricane Ida Updates & Information page.

Here Come the Shad!

It’s not April yet, but it’s close. I was crossing over the free bridge to Pennsylvania the other day, and traffic was slow enough that I could look out at the scenery, and I was happy to see yet another harbinger of spring–a small boat, anchored near the bridge, line fishing.
