Heights Libraries University Heights Branch Closed Due to Basement Flooding 

Curbside Service to begin by Friday

The University Heights branch of the Heights Libraries system will remain closed until further notice due to ongoing flooding in the building’s lower level, home to the children and teen areas.

Staff have moved all books, furniture, and other items from the lower level to the main floor while the area is dried out and possible damage assessed.

Library staff hope to begin curbside service by Friday, September 2. All holds will be extended until Sept. 6.

Water began to infiltrate the basement overnight on Saturday, August 27. The cause of the flooding has not yet been determined, but does not appear to have come from the library’s plumbing. It appears to have come up from the ground under the building.

Updates will be posted on our website and social media, heightslibrary.org.
