Green Bay Press-Gazette Editorial Board Agrees with Central Library Ban on Beverage Containers
Editorial: Library beverage restriction unfortunate, but needed. (Green Bay Press-Gazette, 7/6/2013)
Excerpt: The guideline changes are in response to behavior seen at the central library this past winter. Police calls, mainly for drunken people inside the library and harassment in front of the building, increased so much that community service officers visit the central location twice a day as a preventive measure. Fifty-five people are under no-trespass orders, which are in effect for a year, for violating behavior guidelines at the library.
The change is addressing a real problem.
The Brown County Central Library has a drinking problem. (6/30/2013)
