Library branch is closing for ceiling repair

Book borrowers will get a three-day reprieve on returning books to the North County branch library next month while the library is closed for repairs.

The 23-year-old library across from Harundale Mall will be closed Feb. 4 through Feb. 6 while much of its ceiling is replaced. It will reopen at 1 p.m., Feb. 7.

The ceiling was damaged from a leaking roof that was replaced in March 1991. Clumps of ceiling tiles have fallen and have been replaced.

The new drop ceiling is part of a $25,000 project to repair the branch, said Diane M. Rey, library spokesman.

No library materials will be due back at the branch while it is closed. North County branch is the busiest in the county; about 381,000 items were checked out there in the last six months of 1992.

Automatic doors were to be installed at the same time as the ceiling, but that is being postponed because the materials were not ready.
