Hawaiian-Pacific Collection–Water Damage Update–Week 1


As you may recall, on February 12, over 1/3 of our Hawaiian-Pacific collection was damaged by water that fell through the ceiling from an AC condensate pan. We spent the past week acquiring wood and cement blocks, and made a plan-of-action for dealing with the damaged items. Of the 700 titles that were pulled from the collection, well over half are waiting to be sent back to the shelves. The remaining 261 titles are being treated for water damage.
