Civic Liberry Closed “for Safety Reasons”

Trev 16 November 2009 11

Went to Civic Library today to find it closed “for safety reasons”.

This is the same Civic Library that filled up like a swimming pool when we had that incredible hailstorm.

It doesn’t look like we’ll be needing our water wings this time but I wondered if anybody knew what’s lead to the sudden closure of the library? I’ve got a book on reserve there!

First the hail, now the sky falls in. What next?

An Al Grassby statue didn’t fall through the skylight, did it?

prelude to permanent closure?

So cynical. So perceptive.

I hope that the building is still under warranty – it seems to be a bit of a lemon

A clown trying to break in? (not literal)

Heard on the radio: one of the skylights fell in, so they’re checking the them all.

“The Department of Territory and Municipal Services wishes to advise that Civic Library is temporarily closed while a safety assessment is undertaken of its skylights.

This follows the collapse of part of a skylight on Saturday. Nobody was injured, but a structural engineer has been asked to undertake a detailed assessment of the failure of the skylight and carry out any necessary repairs to ensure the library is safe to re-open.”
