Lead paint leads to complaint against Orange library

NJ Star Ledger – “Orange officials have known for decades that the city’s public library, the oldest in Essex County, has lead paint on its walls. But a complaint that the paint is disintegrating moved the city to inspect the building and threaten the library with closure. In a letter Wednesday, Orange health inspector Vincent DeFilippo said he received a call about lead paint on the building’s walls. The letter, addressed to the library’s executive director Doris Walker, said that he found areas of defective paint, and if they are not abated within two weeks he may shut down the building.”
