On behalf of the Falmouth Memorial Library board of trustees, I wish to express our sincere thanks to everyone involved in rectifying the sprinkler system malfunction that led to the water damage at the library. The members of BNI, meeting in the library at the time of the discovery, went above and beyond in helping move wet books, furniture, and equipment. We also thank our library users for their patience; they had to find alternatives for their inter-library loan orders, their meeting spaces, and their regular library habits for several days.
Last, we appreciate the extra work the staff has done to manage the recovery process. Water is the enemy of both books and computer systems – the backbone of our library. When everything crashes to a halt, it reminds us once again that our people are the heart of the library and they are what make Falmouth’s such a popular place.
