I was attacked at this library the other day by a mentally disabled man. I was there bringing my 13 month old for story time. We are still recovering from minor injuries after being shoved into the lego table, though it could have been much worse as he was throwing heavy metal book stands at the walls in the children’s area where there were several young children as well as at least half a dozen infants. One of them hit the wall just above my daughters head. Thanks to my husband for being there and being the first to spring into action to detain him until authorities were able to get there. Apparently the disturbance began in the adult section and he was able to make it across the library, past the front desk, past the children’s desk, to the back play area without interception by either his caretaker or staff members to endanger vulnerable children. Clearly there was no plan in place for such an emergency! So my question is: What is being done now to protect the library’s patrons from future incidents???
Thank you Ashburn library for such a fun and well organized Spa night!
