HELENA - The Lewis and Clark Library's main branch in downtown Helena reopened at noon Tuesday following weekend flash flooding.

According to Patricia Spencer, the library's public information officer and volunteer coordinator, the flooding occurred on the southeast side of the library in the children's area.

Spencer stated in a release that Service Master — which was in the building for regular cleaning at the time of the flood — was able to contain flooding to a small area and began cleanup immediately.

No books were damaged and the library was closed on Monday to allow for drying and cleanup.

Normally scheduled events and programs will be held this week.
