Mold has closed down the Children's Room at the Ukiah Library.

Mendocino County officials announced Friday that they closed the room as a precaution after mold was detected.

"We are expecting to hear from our contractors next week as far as a timeline for the mold mitigation process," County Librarian Mindy Kittay said in a statement.

In the meantime, she said some of the children's books would be moved to the main library areas, but the children's programs are suspended.
