SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - The main library branch in Sioux City has reopened, a day after street flooding caused by a water main break shut it down.

The Sioux City Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1O8ql64 ) that the Wilbur Aalfs Library branch was forced to close Wednesday.

The water main break was on the east side of the building under a sidewalk. Library director Betsy Thompson says the break flooded parts of the sidewalk and a nearby alley, but the interior of the library wasn’t affected.

The decision to close was made because the library had no running water or air conditioning as crews worked to stop the flow of water and repair the main.
