Tucson's Nanini library branch closed for the day Tuesday after fire retardant was accidentally sprayed, an official says.
The spraying occurred in a portion of the library's book return chute, said Holly Schaffer, a spokeswoman for Pima County Public Libraries.
She said the library located on North Shannon Road near West Ina Road was closed for clean-up, but is expected to reopen as usual at 10 a.m. Wednesday.
The malfunction was not connected to a book return, she said. A special crew is cleaning the area where the retardant was expelled, Schaffer said.
