GLEN ELLYN, Ill. (AP) — A library in suburban Chicago is not letting flood damage stop it from serving the public.
The Glen Ellyn Public Library is offering curbside service for people picking up reading material.
The (Arlington Heights) Daily Herald (http://bit.ly/ZkzvWR ) reports that the record flooding near waterways throughout Illinois inundated the library's subbasement and caused extensive damage to the first floor circulation department.
Director Dawn Bussey says the library's collection itself was not damaged.
While workers inside remove soaked drywall, insulation and carpeting, librarians are staffing a table at the main entrance.
Patrons can call ahead for a book to be pulled from a shelf and pick it up at the door.
There is also a cart of new books for people to browse at the entrance.
