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 .
La Vergne Library Director Donna Bebout says the carpet was covered with two inches of water, with rivers flowing through the library. She says the city departments came together to help the library staff save 35,000 books and media from damage, as well as computers and library bookshelves.
The Library reopened Saturday (May 13th at 10am). The renovations also feature a newly upgraded reference section.
