Broken Pipe Floods Library in Fletcher

The first real artic blast of the season is upon us and it is causing problems.

At the Fletcher Free Library in Burlington crews worked to cleanup after a pipe in the attic froze and burst. The water damaged nearly 4,000 children's books. Fortunately irreplaceable collections were not touched by the water.

Damage estimates are still being tallied. Library staff say they are most concerned about potential water damage to the electrical system. Insurance will likely cover repairs.

"Quite honestly, it could've been a whole lot worse, we have 130,000 books in that building, so there are places that water could have fallen that would've made it a lot worse than this," said Robert Resnik.

The library will be closed this week, but hopes to reopen next week.
