Failed sprinkler caused $83,000 in damage at WF library

WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) - Newschannel 6 has learned just how much damage a broken sprinkler head caused the Wichita Falls Public Library a month and a half ago.

On Tuesday, Wichita Falls City Councilors will be asked to appropriate $83,000 to take care of damages.

Jack Murphy, Wichita Falls Director Parks and Recreation, said maybe a couple thousand books were affected by the failed sprinkler.

The malfunction caused the library to close for two days while crews cleaned and repaired the damaged the water caused.
