Accidental fire retardant deployment closes Tucson's Nanini library for a day

In this 2010 file photo, materials for a Friends of Pima County Public Library  book sale are displayed at Nanini.

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.
