Our Flooded Library

quote from local paper:
“Cedar Rapids Public Library housed hundreds of thousands of books, movies and CDs. Now, much of the collection is gone.

Earlier this week, Library leaders thought they might be able to save some of the books and materials on the first floor. But, mold and humidity problems inside the building have changed everything. Now, the library doesn't think it will be able to save anything.

Five feet of water flushed most of the Cedar Rapids Public Library's books onto the floor. Now, recovery experts say the city has lost nearly two-thirds of the library's collection.”

My favorite library. Flood.

A mess. The library is closed.

Flood water in library going away. Water was 5 foot deep, almost as tall as me.

Big, big, big mess.

Have to get new books. Throw away yucky ones. Library closed.
It is sad.
