This page will be updated with severe weather alerts.
07/15/17 10:51 a.m. There are two unexpected updates. First, we were able to get the cleaning to the library by 9:30 this morning. They will be done by noon, allowing us the opportunity to move items this afternoon. Moving will occur at 2 p.m. today (Saturday) if you can make it. Second, today's move will allow us to open tomorrow (Sunday). I apologize for the erratic schedule. There will not be a 5 p.m. update.
07/15/17 8:03 a.m. UPDATE: The next update will be Saturday at 5 p.m.
07/15/17 7:38 a.m. UPDATE: The water was taken care of overnight so no additional help is needed for water removal. Have a great day.--Jeff
07/15/17 4:35 a.m. UPDATE: We finally may be winning the battle against the water in the lower level, but might need some additional help on Saturday morning. If you are willing to squeegee water for a couple of hours Saturday please call me at 419-957-1528. At this time I don't know how many people we will need to finish removing water. Probably no more than six. Phone reception is not always great in the lower level so please leave a message and I will get back to you soon. If everything goes well (and it may not) I hope to have the flood areas professionally disinfected on Sunday, move items Monday morning and open at noon on Monday. I'll keep you updated.--Jeff
07/14/17 UPDATE: The Findlay-Hancock County Public Library Main Library will be closed on Saturday and Sunday, July 15 and 16, 2017 while the staff deals with flooding in the lower level of the building. All programs scheduled for Saturday and Sunday are cancelled. Library services are available at the Arlington Branch Library on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and at www.findlaylibrary.org.
We are experiencing water in the lower level. So far we are keeping the water level at around one inch, mostly in the in the Lindamood Room and the tutoring area. Please check back at noon on Saturday for updates. At this point the date to move items back downstairs is unknown.
07/14/17 6:30 P.M. UPDATE PLEASE CHECK FOR A STATUS UPDATE TOMORROW, SATURDAY, JULY 15 AT 9:00 A.M. JEFF APOLOGIZED FOR NOT UPDATING SOONER, BUT THE SITUATION HAS BEEN FLUID :-)
JEFF WILL MORE THAN LIKELY BE MAKING OUT A CALL FOR HELP TOMORROW TO ASSIST WITH SWEEPING WATER INTO THE PUMPS, ETC.
