Public areas of state archives reopen after water leak

FRANKFORT — The public service areas of the state Department for Libraries and Archives will reopen Thursday at 10 a.m. after being closed since Nov. 13 because of minimal damage from a water leak.

"The damage was not as widespread or severe as we thought during two initial assessments on Friday night and early Saturday morning. Because of the quick action of our staff, following our disaster response plan, we were able to mitigate any severe damage," said Barbara Teague, state archivist and records administrato and the director of the department's public records division.
