The Lower Level of W. W. Hagerty Library is to remain closed until damage can be repaired from the July flooding. A significant portion of the walls and carpeting in the Lower Level were affected. The Libraries and Facilities departments are working closely with the University's insurance company to expedite replacement of the flooring.
As of Monday, June 25th, the Lower Level of W. W. Hagerty Library is available only to individuals with scheduled classes. The library experienced flooding in the space due to heavy weekend rains and storm water drainage problems with the city’s grid.
Drexel University’s Department of Environmental Health and Safety is currently evaluating the space and will determine appropriate repairs necessary to re-open the space.

Perhaps you're wondering why the lower level of W. W. Hagerty has been closed...
"The Libraries escaped damage from both the earthquake and hurricane Irene, but unfortunately the tremendous amount of rain in the days following proved to be too much for the city's drainage system, and we had some water damage in W. W. Hagerty's lower level as a result. We are working with University Facilities to get the lower level re-opened as quickly as possible so that students can use the space, but also want to make sure that we are adhering to all appropriate safety measures," Danuta A.
