Mystery Leak Plagues Library For Nth Time
Drip. Drip. Drip. Into the plastic wastebaskets. Watch your head or keep your umbrella open.
It's back. The leak that won't go away after decades of roof repairs at the Plattsburgh Public Library.
So far the origin point of the leak hasn't been located but the water keeps coming down in the same area of the library, near the front entrance by the elevators. At least the front desk has been moved away from that spot. Many years ago when the front desk was still in that location a leak came through and hit one of the computers, frying it.
This time no computers were destroyed. But such leaks still mean trouble. Worming its way inside the library structure the water can end up creating great places for mold to grow. And mold isn't good for either books or humans.
