With the warming temperature and nearly 20 inches of melting snow and ice the Library has found itself soggy. Due to the amount of snow and ice the drainage system clogged, with 8 or more inches of solid ice, this combined high wind from the winter storm forced snow and ice under the shingles of the BCPL which sadly found its way into the building. Destroying the Early Readers area as well as nearly 200 books.
The images below are of the damage.
