UPDATE: Southold library opens up late

FILE PHOTO | Southold Free Library closed for repairs Thursday.

Update: The Southold library opened up at 1 p.m. this afternoon.

Original story: Southold Free Library will remain closed until repairs can be made to its heater. Overnight, the Main Road library’s gas burner stopped working, causing temperatures to drop inside the building, director Caroline MacArthur said Thursday morning.

Until the problem can be fixed, Floyd Memorial Library director Lisa Richland said Southold residents are welcome to use the facility in Greenport.

Ms. MacArthur said the library would reopen as soon as the repairs were complete, but did not have a timeframe Thursday morning.
