Mold closes library in new school

Aug. 9– Just two days into the new school year, the library is closed until further notice at East Hardin Elementary School in Savannah and the culprit is mold.

Maintenance workers reportedly found the mold in the school just entering its fourth year of service several weeks before classes resumed.

Hardin County Director of Schools John Thomas said the air conditioning had been set at too warm a level during the summer, allowing mold to grow because of higher humidity.

East Hardin is built on relatively low-lying ground on the site of a former sod farm. This summer has been unusually rainy, contributing to high humidity levels.
