REALLY? . . . . I have watched the John’s picking up hookers there for the last few years and drugs!
The downtown Library administration has allowed drug dealers and hookers to hang there for the past few years and I wonder it the Corp of Commissionaires are no longer there because of the politics and security’s hands been bound from doing their jobs and protecting the citizens and there children.
Many will not allow their children to go to the downtown library. It looks a little better with the new security firm, but it is still a place that is dangerous.
Many of the homeless/addicts hang there in the day, using the washrooms as a consumption area, washing their clothes/hair/bodies in the sinks/toilets, and using it as their personal office. They don’t wear masks, social distance or have any concerns about any disease, including COVID. Many have Hepititis C/HIV-AIDS and other diseases, selling their bodies without concerns and their clients not being concerned.
Using the public washrooms there, is just asking to get some disease! But the management seems to think it is all okay and had her head up in the clouds . . . ignoring public health concerns!
Curb services – – – more than you can imagine!! Security can only do so much under the management there, but it has been somewhat better there with the new company, they need to bring a new CEO that wants to protect it’s clients and their children!
I do not stand alone in my thoughts of the downtown library being a dangerous place for children!
