City of Elizabethton sees eventful year in 2011 - Elizabethton Star

City of Elizabethton sees eventful year in 2011 - Elizabethton Star | Tennessee Libraries | Scoop.it

"...The Elizabethton-Carter County Public Library spent most of the summer without air conditioning. The cooling tower in the system quit working after it was struck by lightening in April. After the project was put out to bid it was expected to take 90 days for the part to be manufactured and installed, which meant it would arrive in September. Temperatures inside the library averaged from the mid 1980s to the mid 1990s and many patrons and employees got sick from the heat. Many library activities were moved outside and the hours were altered to be closed in the middle of the day until the unit was repaired.

 

The library also received a donation of more than 14,000 children’s books, valued at more than $20,000, from professor Flora Joy. The books were donated from Joy’s personal collection she had gathered as a professor in the education department..."
