Hi!

 

Since we're sharing disaster stories.

 

I came in yesterday to a flooded reading pit. This is the third time this
year. Unfortunately I lost over 300 dollars worth of books during the second
deluge. There appears to be a hole in the foundation and the water is
leaking into the return air duct. Maybe they'll get around to fixing it one
of these days.

 

So, any others out there???

Subject: [library-media] Disaster averted

 

Hi:

 

I just had to share what happened yesterday.

 

I had a group of my Library Advisaory Board come in and I went to my
magazine closet to get my box of Advanced Reader copies so that thye could
choose a thankyou gift.  The entire box of books was SOAKING WET!  Not a
single book salvagable.  

So I glanced up and there was a slightly saggy ceiling.  Yikes!  Call the
janitor!  After he got done pulling down all of the soggy drywall, I had a
hole about 3 feet in diameter in my ceiling.

 

Assessing the damage, just that box of review copies and a couple of rolls
of wrapping paper were ruined.  Not a magazine, a book or a dvd were
touched.  I was so lucky, because if the leak had started three feet in any
direction it would have ruined magazines, videos ro the A section of my
fiction! Or, if I had been particularly unlucky, it could have sparked a
fire.

 

I know some of you have had it so much worse, but I had to share my little
scare and my feeling of disaster averted.
