MILFORD, Del.- The Milford Public Library reopened Monday after remaining closed since last Thursday.

The library was closed after a sprinkler pipe burst, causing almost $10,000 worth of damage.

"We feel very lucky and very blessed that this is all that happened from it," said Milford Library Director Kay Hudson. "It's gone extremely wonderful. The staff came in Thursday. They started right in drying off things. We had a company that came in and they couldn't have been any better."

The sprinkler burst inside of the Wilmington Trust Room and the water leaked into the children's room located directly below. The children's room received most of the damage. It remains closed as the library finishes up last minute adjustments before reopening it up to the public.

"Right now people that need something from the children's room one of the staff will go down and get that from them," said Hudson.

They expect the children's room to be open by Wednesday at the latest.
