All Elkhart Public Library locations will be closed until Monday due to electrical issue
All five Elkhart Public Library locations will be closed until Monday after smoke and haze was found in the basement of the Elkhart Public Library on 2nd Street Friday morning, according to officials.
The library was evacuated.
Officials were called around 9:45 a.m. and found smoke in the basement of the library. They say water leaked into the building and caused wires to short out.
The Elkhart Public Library says all five EPL locations - Downtown, Cleveland, Dunlap, Osolo and Pierre Moran branches - are closed until at least Monday "due to an electrical issue affecting our systems."
