CUTPL Press Release - NOTICE

It was recently discovered that there is some mold growth on some of the library books and other surfaces in the lower level of the Culver Union Township Public Library. CUTPL Board of Trustees and Director Colleen McCarty acted swiftly upon learning of this issue, and called ServPro out of Plymouth IN to assess the situation. It was their recommendation to bring in dehumidifiers to help bring down the humidity in the library, and to have the air quality tested.

A representative from ACM Lab, located in South Bend, IN, came to CUTPL on Tuesday, September 25th, and tested the air quality. They found that there is mold growth in several areas of the basement, including the computer lab, large meeting room, and foyer area. Those areas were subsequently closed to the public and CUTPL staff members.

Prior to this discovery, the Board had recently retained D.A. Dodd LLC to refit the HVAC system to better control humidity levels. Those repairs will soon be completed and will effectively prevent any further mold growth in the library.

Remediation to eliminate the mold will begin on Monday, October 8th. The affected areas will remain closed to the public and CUTPL staff until all remediation is completed. It is planned for the Library upper level to remain open to the public during this time.

We are fortunate to have identified this problem early and to have taken the appropriate steps to remediate the issue. We will keep the public updated on all further developments as the information becomes available. Our top priority is the health and well-being of our staff, patrons, and the library.

CUTPL to Temporarily Stop Accepting Book and DVD Donations

Culverites have been very generous in donating their books to the CUTPL and we are most grateful to each of you! We review every gift and decide whether we will add it to our collection or give it to our Friends of the Library group, which then sells the items. The funds they raise are given to the Library, and we rely on our Friends to finance several programs for us, including the High School Book Club and our Celebrated Voices series.

At this time we have a fortunate challenge at the Library: we have received a large number of book and DVD donations from members of the community. However, due to our current space and staff constraints, and the large number of donated items we have to process, we will not be accepting any more donations until sometime after the new year. We’ll let you know as soon as we are again ready to receive your most generous donations!

Thank you!
