Library Damaged from Burst Pipe

I’m sorry to report that North Shore Country Day sustained substantial damage on campus when a pipe burst in the early hours on Friday, February 1, and flooded our library. While the room itself took a real hit, it was the damage to our book collection and artwork that was so distressing for all of us on campus. I wanted to share this information with you to explain why we have had more trucks than normal along Forest Street and Elder Lane in the past week.
Over the next four to five months, we will be gutting the space and restoring the library, so you might see a greater than average amount of truck traffic. We will continue to work assiduously to keep them off the streets and do our best to minimize the impact on street traffic by staging the contractor parking in our Middle School lot. As always, please feel free to reach out to me ( or to our Director of Operations, Cindy Hooper ( if we can provide more information.
