Damage from Heavy Rains

The heavy rains on Wednesday, August 15 caused flood damage in the basement of the Central Branch as well as in the upper stairwells and the second floor where rainwater entered from unfinished areas. Library and City staff are working closely with the contractor and their sub-trades to assess the damage and to determine the impact on the project. Some materials in water-damaged areas may be able to be restored and some, such as drywall, willl need to be replaced.

An update will be provided when these assessments have taken place and the impact of the damage on the library's move-in date is known.
