A library employee confirmed Wednesday that a sump pump malfunction in the early morning on New Year's Day had caused minor flooding and drenched the carpet. The employee said there was no damage and that most of the water had been removed and large fans were running to dry up the remaining moisture.

Fire crews responded to a call Tuesday morning for reports of water in the basement at the library.
