(S.D.)-Leaky Deadwood Library Closed Indefinitely

By: Jeremy Anderson Posted at: 05/22/2013 02:15 PM

     DEADWOOD, S.D. (AP) - So many leaks have sprung in the roof of the Deadwood Public Library that officials there have closed it indefinitely.
     The water started dripping in the 108-year-old building Saturday. Library workers covered shelves in huge tarps to protect most of the books, but the ceilings, walls, woodwork and carpeting are damaged.
     Library Director Jeannette Chaney-Moodie says that she closed down the library when a worker spotted water coming out of a light fixture in the bathroom.

     She says the library was scheduled to get a new $49,000 roof this summer, but a hail storm that hit Deadwood on Friday weakened the spray-on seal that had been applied as a temporary fix last fall.
