Library manager reports on odd odor in new building

We are providing these answers to clarify issues related to odors that some people have reported in the Chatham Community Library. Staff and patrons first reported an unpleasant “new smell” odor not long after the library opened. To some people, the odor appears to be a bit stronger when the air conditioning or heat system is not running and when less air is circulating. Some people do not notice an odor at all, while others seem very sensitive to it.
