Less than two weeks after opening its dropbox to begin accepting returns in the first step of modified services, Huntsville Public Library is halting those plans due to air quality issues in the building.
“Due to indoor air quality issues in the library, staff cannot enter the building until evaluated and corrected,” said David Tremblay, HPL’s new CEO, in a media release. “We apologize for the interruption with progressing further in our Steps towards our modified services. We were getting very excited about our next steps and reintroducing lending materials back out to our community.”
The dropbox will be closed until further notice, but staff will continue to offer virtual services via huntsvillelibrary.ca and the library’s social media channels.
“We understand this is a disappointment; however, ensuring staff work in a healthy and safe environment is of utmost importance. We are sure you can appreciate our concern for the health and safety of the staff and our
community. We are working quickly to complete the necessary testing and remediation. We are grateful for your understanding and are optimistic this will be resolved soon.”
