Back in February, the La Vergne Public Library was forced to close due to water damage from a burst pipe. During the closure, the City Of La Vergne went above and beyond to help repair the waterlogged library.
Employees from all City departments stopped by during the restoration process to offer help and moral support . “The carpet was covered with two inches of water, with rivers flowing through the library," said La Vergne Library Director Donna Bebout. All hands were on deck, and the extra help from the other departments helped the library staff save 35,000 books and media from damage, as well as computers and library bookshelves.
The Library is set to reopen Saturday May 13th at 10am, featuring a newly upgraded reference section. Please join us as we celebrate! Come have your picture taken with Llama Llama, Pete the Cat, and other surprise book characters anytime before 11:30am! Light refreshments will be served!
