Water-Main Break Damages Library at University in St. Louis

July 02, 2009

Summer classes at Harris-Stowe State University resumed today, but the library remains closed, after a water-main break on the St. Louis campus on Wednesday sent a geyser of water into the air and across the quad, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Water gushed through the library’s back door and lapped at the bottoms of shelves, a university official told the newspaper. Damage is still being assessed. —Andrew Mytelka
