An eastern Lincoln County library is in need of repairs after pipes burst and a boiler broke this week as a result of cold temperatures, county officials said.
The Florence S. Shanklin Library, located on Fairfield Forest Road in Denver, will be closed until 10 a.m. Monday, according to a county press release issued Wednesday afternoon.
Below-average temperatures contributed to the various building damages including a flooded front entrance and bathroom as a result of broken pipes.
County officials said a new boiler has also been ordered and will be installed this week.
No books, shelving, furniture or other library materials were affected by the incident, the release said.
County Manager Tracy Jackson praised everyone involved with locating and fixing the damages.
“The Lincoln County Parks and Recreation and Maintenance staff were alert and responded quickly to this situation,” he said in the release. “They prevented the damage from being much worse.”
