STONY POINT - The Rose Memorial Library in Stony Point has reopened after closing due to damage caused by major flooding.

A water main break last Thursday flooded the children's section of the library, destroying books and causing thousands of dollars worth of damage.

The adult section of the library reopened Wednesday during repairs.

While the library is up and running, employees say there is still much work to do. They estimate that the flooding caused about $90,000 in damage. About $50,000 is being covered by insurance.

The library has set up a GoFundMe page to help recoup some costs.
