Water-damaged Delaware Library Closed for Repairs Through End of January
Link to November 26 (Salisbury, MD) Daily Times article, "Georgetown library will remain shut into new year".
Excerpt: The Georgetown Public Library will remain closed through the end of January, with repairs to the water-damaged facility estimated to cost $250,000, officials said.
On Sept. 26, a defective pipe fitting damaged books, carpet, furniture, and drywall on the building's first floor. The flood occurred less than two months after the Aug. 9 grand opening.
"The nature of this disaster is taking longer than we'd hoped," said Paul Enterline, president of the library's board of directors. "Basically, it's kind of like a whole new building project."
