Obnoxious Fumes Forces Library Closure


By Jorge Campos

Fumes from roof repairs forced the temporary closure of Nealley Library Monday, college officials announced.

“We apologize for any inconvenience,” Eve Kikawa, dean of fine and performing arts said.

Fumes from the installation of roofing materials were sucked into the library through the air conditioning system at about 2:45 p.m. The library closed about 15 minutes later.

Chemicals used during roofing are not toxic, but are considered a nuisance because of the odor.

The library will reopen at 7:30 a.m. Tuesday. Workshops scheduled for 5:30 and 6:45 p.m. have been moved to room A-207.
