Thank you for the outpouring of support after the recent vandalism at our Florence location. So many of you have expressed shock and outrage over the incident, and love for the library. We’ve gotten many questions from you about the vandalism and what will happen next, so we wanted to give you an update on the situation.
The incident occurred Friday, March 8, at about 8:30 AM. Some staff were already at the library and called 911 after seeing a man throwing rocks through the windows along the front side. The Florence Police Department responded immediately and arrested the person responsible, who was still on the scene.
