NORWALK, Conn. — The Norwalk Public Library main branch plans to reopen Friday morning after a burst pipe forced the branch to closed Thursday.

The pipe burst while a contractor was working on a heating system Thursday morning, sending water pouring through several floors of the building, according to the Hour. Library officials told the Hour that the water hit all three floors of the library and that several hundred large-print books might need to be replaced.

Though the historical room in the basement was also hit, historical books and other materials in that room were spared due to shelves that protected them from falling water, the Hour reported. Several patrons of the library also rushed to protect books from being hit by falling water, the Hour said.

The library will be open from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Friday. The Hour reported that it is too early to estimate the cost of the damage from Thursday's incident.
