A plumbing water spillage in the library’s 4th floor restrooms caused water damage to the 3rd floor this morning. Water leaked through the 3rd floor ceiling, causing damage to the area and to some books from the library’s collection.
The affected area is near the restrooms on the south end of the 3rd floor, in the original section of the library building. The area has been cordoned off while cleaning and repairs are underway.
Please do not touch the books in the water-damaged area until clean-up is finished! Facilities Services reports that cleanup/restoration activity is expected to be ongoing through this evening and into tomorrow.
