Hale Library is closed for the 2018-2019 school year. The building and its contents have significant smoke and water damage, and a timeline for reopening is still being determined. An international disaster recovery and property restoration company called Belfor is on site to clean and restore Hale Library. All carpet and drop ceilings have been removed as well as most furniture and large amounts of drywall. All library books and materials are being removed from the building to be professionally cleaned. While the damage to Hale was extensive, we are presented with a clean slate and a unique opportunity to rebuild a next-generation library. To follow our progress, subscribe to the Hale Library Blog.
