IRRIGON, OR - People in Irrigon are using a van as their only library after a blueprint mix-up shut down the city's brand new facility.

The new library was open for less than a month when inspectors learned the wall between the library and city hall was a fire hazard.

Storing its 2,500 books isn't new for The Oregon Trail Library District. Before the 1.2 million dollar facility opened, the library operated out of a school bus.

The city and library are still trying to agree on how to share the space between the two buildings affected by the hazardous wall.
