In Texas, they’re serious about their books. When mold was found in the Godeke Library (Lubbock Texas), they shut down the library and they’re porting out the 80,000 books and things (with the assistance of the inmates of Lubbock County Jail) so that the extent of the mold can be determined–after 18 years of leaks. So far, no one has gotten sick–not patrons, not employees, and not Lubbock County Inmates. What they’re going to do about it is an open question, until the extent of the problem can be determined. In the meantime, readers won’t need to go into book withdrawal–there are 3 more local libraries in the system.
