PRICHARD, Ala. (WALA) - A viewer called FOX10 News and alerted us to a problem at the Prichard library on Love Joy Loop.
Library staff and patrons in Prichard have been putting up with the lack of air conditioning for a couple of weeks now, according to a source at the library who wishes to remain anonymous.
A handful of customers trickled in and out, putting up with the heat to get their work done.
"I stay in the neighborhood, so I walked up here. You get here and it's like, ‘Okay, I'm going to cool off for a little bit,' and then you walk in and there's no cool air," said library customer Antwain Conner.
Inside the library, the hum of industrial fans alerts you to the fact that something is off. Then you notice it's the air conditioning that's been checked out.
A thermostat on the wall read 87° Fahrenheit.
"It didn't seem that hot to me. Plus there was a fan on me," said library customer Jermaine Robertson.
"It's cause for concern because you have older people that come up use the library just as much as someone like myself. It's definitely something that needs to get addressed, I think," said Cooper.
The city won't talk to us.
The mayor's office passed us on to Prichard's public information officer, who said he couldn't talk to us about the situation.
At least one worker at the library was soaked from the heat and stuck inside until her shift ended late in the afternoon.
"I've been in places that are far worse than that," said Robertson.
A contractor told us it could cost more than $2,000 to repair the system.
Look for a big drop in our temperatures for Tuesday.
