COLLEGE PARK, Md. (CBSDC) -- Students at the University of Maryland, College Park were greeted with a nasty surprise when they visited their on-campus library on the first day of classes - moldy books.

About 10 percent of the 200,000 library books on the fifth floor of McKeldin Library were covered with mold, prompting staff to shut down the entire floor.

That area of the building is expected to remain closed until the moldy mess is cleaned up.
