News: Flooding at Fletcher Free Library

The Fletcher Free Library is back in book-loving action after a January pipe burst and soaked more than 800 volumes. "It could have been much, much worse," says youth services librarian Rebecca Goldberg, thanking the Burlington Fire Department, Parks and Recreation staff and the FFL circulation team for saving books, documents and computers. The pipe burst in the attic, and the water spilled into an office and the children's area, where most of the damage occurred. Since so many moldy books got tossed, the library is inviting patrons to donate books or money to replace the lost lit.

Fletcher Free Library: Contact youth services Librarian Rebecca Goldberg for information about donations, 865-7216. Info, fletcherfree.org.
