Repairs are still underway at the water-damaged Wahoo Public Library in eastern Nebraska.
City administrator Melissa Harrell says the city would like to reopen the library by the end of summer. People have been borrowing books from a temporary library set up at the Veterans Memorial Building.
Much of the library ceiling collapsed Jan. 7 under the weight of accumulated water from a fire system line. No one was injured. The problem was discovered before the collapse, so firefighters and other city workers were able to deploy plastic tarps over the bookshelves.
Harrell says total damage from the water is estimated at about $160,000.
