CommunityEunice & James L. West Library damaged due to winter weather by Angela Castillo February 19, 2021 written by Angela Castillo February 19, 2021The second staircase leading up to the first floor of the library is where a stream of water ran down the steps.On the third floor landing of the library a ceiling tile fell from the ceiling..Here is a pile of ceiling debris on the third floor of the library.The flood seemed to start on the third floor of the library where special collections and the head librarian’s office are located.Here is a pile of ceiling debris right before the study rooms on the second floor of the library.In an effort to preserve books on the second floor of the library, books have been covered with tarps.Water dripped behind the wall by the first floor elevator near the Academic Success Center in the library.The worst of the water leak in a part of the library caused most, if not all, of the ceiling to fall in that area.The second floor of the library accumulated the most of the water, creating a set of small pools closest to the group study rooms, right above the Academic Success Center.Here is another photo of standing water and covered books.Looking down from the first floor stairwell to the basement water pools directly under one of the facility staff ladders.On the first floor, the water damage has sunk deep into the carpeting causing it to tear apart at the seams. Replacing the carpet across the entire library could take months.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Related Eunice and James L.
