The Rockingham (Vermont) Free Public Library was flooded over the weekend, and now library staff are waiting to find out the extent of the damage. The "History Room" contained historical records, local books, and genealogical records, many of which are irreplaceable.
The water-soaked materials were shipped to a company in Massachusetts where they're going to freeze-dry and preserve everything. At this point, librarians don't think anything was destroyed, although some materials were obviously damaged. The total damage won't be known for sure for another 4-6 weeks when the materials return.
