MILWAUKEE -- Two spots on Milwaukee’s East Side are closed, at least in part due to the weather.

The temporary location of the East Side Library at Murray Ave. and Greenwich Ave. is closed Wednesday because there's no running water. The pipes in the building froze due to the extreme cold. There's no word yet on when the library will re-open.

All other Milwaukee Public Libraries will be open from noon until 6 o’clock.

The Oriental Theater on Farwell Ave. will remain closed until at least Friday. The building has no heat after the boiler broke. No word if the freezing temperatures are to blame.
