Colorado: “Boulder’s Main Library to Gradually Reopen Following Meth Contamination”￼
From Daily Camera:
The Boulder Public Library, which has remained closed since Dec. 20 due to methamphetamine contamination, will gradually reopen beginning this week, according to a city news release.
The city voluntarily tested the library for methamphetamine contamination after individuals were reported to have smoked the highly addictive stimulant in the facility’s restrooms in November and early December.
A contractor determined the highest levels of contamination are limited to the library’s public-facing restrooms.
However, surface contamination was also discovered in a “few discrete areas,” such as heavily used seating areas on the first floor, the news release said.
