The water caused damage to the 4th and 5th floors, but fast actions by staff members saved books and equipment from being damaged. Construction crews had to replace carpets, sheetrock, and insulation. The damage is being assessed by the construction company Consigli, and it will be covered by their insurance. Ongoing renovations are on schedule, and the library has been re-opened to all necessary staff members.
