Laramie Library Getting Security Cameras After Vandalism
LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Security cameras and motion detectors are set to be installed at Laramie's public library after several incidents of vandalism in recent years.
The Albany County Public Library has set aside $5,000 to pay for the cameras and detectors along with an alarm system and panic buttons.
Library director Ruth Toyanek told the newspaper that the library also plans to improve outdoor lighting and landscaping, possibly by pruning back plants.
Under a proposed policy, the library wouldn't store security camera footage for more than 30 days and access would be given to law enforcement when there is vandalism, theft or other possible crime.
The worst case of vandalism came in early November, when two glass entry doors were damaged and three windows were destroyed.
