Closed Again, July 6 – 13th

The Foundation’s “Book Loft” will again be closed; this time through Monday, July 13 for two reasons.

The first is that one of the compressors for the air-conditioning has failed, so half of the building is without AC. The building owner will be replacing both compressors (since they’re both 28 years old) sometime during the week— and it takes a crane to do so because they are installed on the roof. The thing is that we don’t know the actual day next week— it’s forecast to be in the 90s all week and it puts a great deal of stress on the remaining working system to have it running with the other off. So it’s hot here.

The other is that Montgomery County is one of seven hot spots for extreme risk for the Coronavirus infection. Two of the others are Butler and Hamilton counties, so that makes a whole lot of free-floating infectors in our area. With the mask ordinance in Dayton, I hope that we will begin to see a reduction in those numbers.

The board will revisit this situation next weekend and decide where to go from there. I surely do hope that we will be able to decide to once again open our doors.
