Leak Occurs in Main Library

On Saturday, April 10, 2010, a leak in the Library’s chilled water system resulted in some minor flooding in the Main Library building.  Water was found in some portions of the Main Bookstacks and the northwest corner of the fourth floor.  The Main Bookstacks were closed for a short time on Saturday after discovery of the leak.

The Library’s preservation and conservation and facilities staff reacted quickly.  There is minimal collection damage.
