LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) _ The Spencer Museum of Art on the University of Kansas campus will reopen after repairing damage from a water main break.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports the museum is scheduled to reopen Tuesday.

The museum closed Aug. 1 after the water main break sent water into the building's lower floors, which house the Murphy Art and Architecture Library. The museum's artwork, which is displayed on the upper floors, was not damaged.

Officials have said an estimated 15,000 to 20,000 of the museum's 170,000 volumes were damaged.
