As darkness closes in around us...

We have 'lost' another light fixture here at the library, bringing our total of useless light fixtures to 10. Unfortunately, the problem is more severe than a simple burnt-out bulb: the ballasts need to be replaced in each fixture. (Sorry, I have no idea what exactly a 'ballast' is, but I know that you need an electrician to replace them). We have been assured for the last couple of months that the problem will be fixed as soon as possible, and we all have high hopes of the book stacks being navigable again by the time Winter Solstice rolls around. In the interim, we apologize for the inconvenience and offer the use of our flashlight for those with poor night vision.
