The cleanup job at the Burbank Central Library is going to take longer than just a few days to complete. A press release from City Hall today says the library on North Glenoaks Boulevard will be shutdown until next Monday, April 18.
Library services director, Sharon Cohen, estimated that between one-and-two thousand books were lost in that broken water pipe incident over the weekend. The pipe ruptured last Saturday morning. Keith Sterling, public information officer, says the pipe was located in the ceiling above the travel/history section.
Officials had hoped to have the library reopen tomorrow, after announcing it would be closed to the public today. Apparently the water damage was more extensive than previously thought. Not only were books damaged or destroyed, but some of the carpeting has to be replaced, too.
Due to the closure, these events at the Burbank Central Library have been canceled.
