It's Humid in the Downtown Library

Two air handlers, circa 1958, are being replaced in the Downtown Library. Fresh air is not being pushed through the older portion of the lower level, or the 1st and 2nd floors so it is muggy and sticky inside the Library. We apologize for the inconvenience, and are doing all that we can to cool those spaces down. There are no operating windows in the Downtown building, so we are limited. However, the front doors are opened at 7:00 AM and are left open until closing.

If you are circa 1958 or earlier, you can remember, as I can, a time when this was the normal summertime condition in all buildings!

The work is scheduled to be completed within the next week or two. We are hoping for a cool spell.

Delivery of the library's new air handlers raised passing interest and even mild titillation among the characteristically blase citizens of this teeming sub-metropolis. For the first time in half a century, patrons on the west side of the downtown branch quaffed un-handled air. Ken Raynor snapped a series of photographs to record the event for posterity.
