It's a scorcher outside, but there's little relief for students and staff inside CSU-Pueblo's library. Temperatures are reaching into the uppers 70s and even into the 80s in parts of the building.
The university says the air conditioning system is being calibrated because the entire building isn't being cooled properly. "Many areas of the building are meeting the comfort requirements which is about 74 degrees... some of the areas are not meeting that requirement. They're in the high 70s. Those are the areas we're concentrating on," said John Barnosky, Director of Planning and Construction at CSU-Pueblo. Barnosky says crews have been working on the system for the past six weeks. They hope to have the system fixed by the end of the week.
CSU-Pueblo's library was rededicated in April after undergoing a $24 million renovation.
