Midland Library Saves Collection From Flooding, Shares Experience Online

The Grace A. Dow Memorial Library in Midland is documenting its experience with the historic flooding on social media.


A video posted Friday showed water pouring in the building, but the library had taken measures to protect its collection.

Staff, volunteers, and the Michigan National Guard helped to move almost all of the materials to higher ground.

The library says while the cause of this flood is different than the one the city experienced in 2017, they once again face a long restoration process.
