To protect patrons and staff from potential health & safety issues with the facility, the
Montesano Timberland Library / W.H. Abel Memorial Library is temporarily closed.
On Tuesday, December 11, 2018 the library was temporarily closed as the main sewer line backed up in both restrooms. The sewer line was packed with paper towels which caused overflow out into the hallway, throughout the library, out the front doors, and also into the return air system.
ServPro began cleanup at the library on Wednesday morning, December 12, 2018.
The collection is safe, however the service desk was damaged. The walls around the restrooms will need to have sheetrock removed up to the four foot mark due to bacterial mosture damage. The floors will need to be taken up and repaired or sealed. Additional damages need to be assessed and a timeline will be determined based on our bid process and repair work needed.
A date to reopen has yet to be determined. We will provide an update on January 2, 2019.
More information will be posted on the Facebook page and the location page.
The outside book drop at Montesano will continue to be checked daily.
Patrons with holds at the Montesano library can request remaining items be moved to nearby Elma or Aberdeen Libraries, which will be open normal operating hours.
