CH Booth Library faces prolonged closure due to water damage

CH Booth Library in Newtown is facing a prolonged closure due to a broken sprinkler pipe.  There is severe water damage to the building. 


Library officials say the facility will likely be closed for several weeks.  All programs and club meetings have been cancelled. 


The water soaked through items on the first and second floor.  Dehumidifiers are placed around the affected areas to prevent mold.  Workers are looking to see what can be saved and what has to be considered a loss.  The Library's website says the phone system is not currently working and only authorized personnel are allowed in the building.


Newtown residents are being asked not to return items that have been checked out to help protect them.  No fines will be charged.  If items were borrowed from other local libraries, patrons may be responsible for fines.  The CH Booth website is still available for people to borrow audio books, ebook and other online services.  Library cards will work at any Connecticut library.
