logosmallerThe Big Bear Library will be closed until at least early August while crews repair damage caused by a plumbing leak.

The leak was discovered on July 11 after a hose that feeds clean water into a restroom burst, flooding the restroom and eventually the lobby and community room with an inch of water. The library was closed the following day to begin repairing the carpet, ceiling panels and drywall that was damaged from the leak.

“Fortunately, nothing in our branch collection was damaged,” said County Librarian and Deputy Executive Officer Leonard Hernandez. “The water damage is being cleaned and the necessary repairs are underway so we can get back to business.”

Customers are encouraged to access other mountain branch libraries in Lake Arrowhead, Crestline or Running Springs. For a full listing of the County’s 32 libraries, please visit http://www.sbclib.org/ or call (909) 387-2220.
