LODI, Ohio -- A roughly 6-year-old public library building in northeast Ohio is closed because of structural issues.

Administrators of the Medina County branch library in Lodi say they've been advised by the county prosecutor's office not to provide details about the problems.

The library was built with $4.2 million from a tax increase voters approved in 2003.

Architect David Millingtells The Plain Dealer that timber beams may have separated because they weren't completely dry during construction.

He says the library contacted him about the beams months ago.

Milling says if that's the structural problem, he doesn't think it's a major one.

The building was shut down Nov. 21 and will remain closed at least until early January.

Patrons are now using a bookmobile.
