The Morinville Community Library was damaged by water over the weekend.
On Saturday (November 4), a major part of the library had to be taken apart to dry after a water pipe started leaking in the roof.
"It affected the section that contains the non-fiction and a good portion of the adult fiction section," said Isabelle Cramp, the library manager.
Seven full boxes and almost 500 books have been taken off the shelves due to water damage.
"What was accomplished over the weekend was actually incredible when I look back on it. I can't believe that we were able to reopen to the public so quickly," added Cramp.
As of Monday, the library opened again after the hard work of staff and volunteers.
