A recent police investigation revealed that an incident of criminal conduct took place in the White Plains Public Library.
We work hard to make the Library a safe environment, especially for children and teens. As a community, we have invested millions in our Library to create a welcoming, community-oriented, and productive space for our residents.
The incident occurred in an area frequented by adults. At no time were any patrons of the library in danger. There was no exposure to young people and the individual involved has been arrested.
We are extra vigilant of adults in the Trove, our children’s library, and the Edge, our teen library. When staff members see suspicious behavior they are quick to call law enforcement.
The White Plains Public Library is one of the safest public places in the City of White Plains. Our Public Safety Department and the staff of the Library will continue to work together to keep it that way.
