Boulder Library Repairing Meth Contamination


City of Boulder increased security, and temporarily closed public library after discovering methamphetamine contamination in public restrooms.



Results from samples collected in bathroom air ducts and furniture on the main floor of the library on Dec. 12, Dec. 20 and Dec. 21 indicate contamination levels exceeded state standards of methamphetamine cleanup, a Dec. 30, 2022 report by QUEST Environmental said.


Remediation crews have discarded all upholstered furniture in the library. The closure is a symptom of a drug addiction crisis that Boulder, like cities across the country, is ill-equipped to handle. According to the state, 18 people died in Boulder County of a methamphetamine overdose in 2021.


Repairs are just starting after months since the library closed and later reopened. Six restrooms were involved and work should begin this coming week.


New installation of ventilation fans, ducts and sensors as well as wall and ceiling repair. The total costs to date exceed $160,000 and it's expected to roll past the $200,000.00 mark.
