William Hall Library closed until further notice
CRANSTON, R.I. (WLNE) — The William Hall Library in Cranston announced they will be closed until further notice on Wednesday.
In a post to social media the library said a heating issue has forced them to close.
While there’s no set date for reopening, Sarah Bouvier, communications manager for the library, told ABC 6 News that “htis closure is only temporary as we complete repairs on our boiler. We hate to be closed, but without heat, it’s just too cold for staff and patrons whose comfort and safety are our priority.”
“Rhode Island Building code 602.4 states all indoor occupiable work spaces must maintain a minimum temperature of sixty-five degrees Fahrenheit between Oct. 1-May 1 and we aren’t able to maintain that temperature at this time,” she added. “Our boiler is being repaired and the building should reopen soon.”
The library apologized for the inconvenience in their release.
