What an uproar in the library this morning when security officers opening the building discovered flooding in the library near the reference area. Both levels of the building took on damage. Computers, books, and furniture had to be cleared from the area and the surfaces dried and treated.

We are having finals and would normally strive for quiet study spaces, but it is a very noisy morning. We apologize for the inconvenience.
