Books that got wet as a result of the leak on July 4th have been fanned out to dry in areas around the basement. Some have been frozen until we can get to them. We estimate that 3,500 to 4,000 books were affected by the flood. Some will be able to return the stacks in a day or so, others will have to be repaired or replaced. Some aisles on ground west remain closed while we work on getting the books dry, and the messed cleaned up. We hope that everything will be back to normal by the end of the week!
