The Triangle: Storms Close Basement of Library
September 16, 2011
By Laura DiSanto
The lower level of Drexel's W.W. Hagerty Library has been temporarily closed due to water damage following heavy rain storms that occurred the evening of Sept. 7.
As reported on the Drexel Libraries Twitter page Sept. 8, the lower level suffered water damage that destroyed the carpets. While the basement is currently closed for repairs, the first and second floors are open to students.
According to Jennifer James Lee, marketing and events associate for Hagerty Library, the lower level will remain closed for a short period of time until all the carpeting can be removed and replaced. Although the damage occurred during the term break while many students were not on campus, the library is working hard to ensure the closure will not affect students too far into the fall term.
