As of this week, the restrooms are closed

The Chief of the Library and the City Librarian made the decision to close the public bathrooms on the 3rd floor indefinitely. The last straw occurred 1 1/2 weeks ago. A patron was caught cooking heroin in the stall in the men's restroom.

I have worked on this floor for 3 years, and they chose that incident as the reason.
The paramedics had to be called because a patron overdosed in the men's

A fight broke out between a group of men's in the restroom.

A father and son were robbed and the boy was punched in the face
in the men's restroom.

The toilet and or, one of the urinals are intentionally clogged at least
once a week.
You get the idea, a lot of bad things have happened in that restroom before, and they thought nothing of it.

I'll never understand why people defile the library like that. The libraries I grew up with were pristine with the exception of some gum under the desks. Thank God for that. As much as I used to get books, it would have been really uncomfortable if I knew people were doing drugs in the library.

They do a little bit of everything in the library. I spoke with my friend who said the central branch in Atl is no too different.
