More Worries at the Community Center

Yesterday morning, there was water coming down through the ceiling in the library at the Community Center.  It wasn't raining yesterday morning, so that is a particularly bad sign.  There is another place in the Community Center that is known to be a chronic leaker: that would be in the big room, over the stage.  This place in the library: not so much.  This is the library, where we keep the books, which don't do well with water.  This is worrisome with 4 stars.

Help came when someone arrived and started catching the water; and then the ceiling panel started to bow from the weight of the water above, which was not exiting fast enough.  Well, fast enough for those collecting the water, but not fast enough for the bowing panel.  The panel was eventually removed and a lot of insulation descended with the removal.  Oh my gracious!

So there they are.  At the moment, here's some piece of filler in the hole (see photo above), but obviously if there is more water, the filler is no kind of deterrent to the water flowing freely onto the books, onto the floor of the library, onto the librarians.

What are we supposed to do next?  Find a little Dutch boy to stick his hand in the dike?
