Library at Pompei closing

Apparently the library at Pompei is closing due to poor conditions/materials in bad shape...wonder where it will all be relocated to and how accessible the materials will be for research in the near future?

in other news, apparently even when modern structures collapse at Pompei, its newsworthy...sigh. soon it will be everytime someone sneezes...
