The fight to keep Pelham Bay Library safe continues.
After an outcry about security concerns after school at the Pelham Bay Library, Senator Jeff Klein hosted an emergency meeting to see what could be done about keeping a vital community resource safe. The meeting comes after three young men verbally assaulted a security guard at the branch.
Klein, Councilman Jimmy Vacca, and Assemblyman Michael Benedetto, as well as patrons of the library and parents attended the meeting, held on Thursday, February 21. Representatives of the New York Public Library were also present.
Klein was very angry because he had felt that the security guard, and the library itself were being denigrated. He was also upset because the problem seemed to come from parents not supervising their children adequately.
