Library Security Summit - Saturday, October 4


On Saturday October 4, 2008, a library security summit will be held at the Lunenburg Public Library. The program will be from 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

Recent news articles remind us that public libraries are not immune from many of the safety problems which affect our society today. Libraries experience a wide variety of security issues, including child safety concerns, theft of materials, unruly teens, etc. The "Library Security Summit" will provide an opportunity to hear library administrators and a representative from the law enforcement community speak about providing a safe environment for library users. MBLC Chairman, George Comeau, will moderate a panel of library directors who will talk about security issues at their libraries. A representative from the police will discuss safety awareness for parents, children, and teens. Gregor Trinkaus-Randall, MBLC Preservation Specialist, will discuss steps to minimize the possibility of theft or destruction of library materials, developing security policies and procedures, and facility issues which impact library security.

Everyone is invited to attend including Friends, Trustees, and Library Staff.

Admission is free, however registration is required.
