Mold causes new problem for UNLV library


The Las Vegas Review-Journal has a report on troubling mold in the library at UNLV.

\"UNLV\'s troubled Lied Library has suffered another setback with the discovery of dangerous molds growing in the unfinished building.

Workers this week are trying to get rid of moldy materials that otherwise would pose a threat to the students, librarians and books that this summer are expected to fill the $53 million facility. \"

The doors of the library, which benefited from a $15 million donation from the Lied Foundation, are expected to open this summer, at least six months behind schedule.
Problems with the library\'s construction have included the death of a construction worker, finding unexpected utility lines underground, stormy weather, floors that needed to be reinforced to support loaded bookshelves and inferior masonry.
