To The Editor:
The Oswego Public Library encourages people of all ages to visit the library.
Those using the library and its resources have the right to expect a safe and comfortable environment that supports appropriate library services.
For the past year, the library has experienced problems posing both a disruptive and unsafe environment to our patrons and visitors.
To address these problems the library has hired a security firm to assist the staff in handling and preventing such issues from occurring in the future.
ICU Security has experience working in public libraries and understands what is expected from library visitors.
In addition to training the library staff, ICU will be working directly with local law enforcement agencies in our community to address these concerns.
Please assist the library staff or our security in maintaining a safe and comfortable environment by reporting any misuse or disruption you witness.
Thank you for helping make this library a good experience for everyone.
Carol Ferlito, Oswego SD Public Library Director
