Library café opens after fixing sewage pipe damage

Illustration: MaryAnne Bowen

For the entire first month of this school year, Whitman students working into the late hours of the night at Penrose Library have had to go without the treats normally provided by the library café. On Monday, Sept. 26, the café reopened, and that period of hunger and strife finally came to an end, giving many tired library-goers one more reason to procrastinate.

The café was closed due to a complication with a broken sewage pipe. According to Roger Edens, general manager of Bon Appétit, the construction workers excavating Memorial Hall struck a sewage pipeline, causing water to soak into all porous substances.

Needless to say, there were sanitary and structural complications.

Edens remarked on the recent opening of the café via email: “The room has since been cleaned and sanitized and the cabinets have been rebuilt and replaced.”

This is wonderful news for weary students in need of sustenance to help them power through a rough night of homework.
