Library cooling system to experience shutdowns

-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

Patrons visiting the Mesa Public Library during the next couple of months should prepare themselves for what might be some uncomfortable conditions.

The county has hired a contractor to improve the cooling capabilities of the library’s heating/cooling system.

As a result of this work, the air-handling unit will be shut down intermittently from beginning Monday through June 30.

Shutdowns will be kept to a minimum and will last between one to eight hours per 24-hour period. Work will be done 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

No weekend shutdowns are anticipated.

“We are expecting improvements from this,” Library Manager Charlie Kalogeros-Chattan said. “We are grateful that people are willing to just go through the experience with us on the days the system is shut down. We’re sorry that people have to go through this.”

Kalogeros-Chattan said that the other choice was to shut the library down, but she tries not to do that.

“We decided that since the shutdowns will be of a shorter duration, it was better if we just kind of stay open,” she said.
