Area libraries increasing security to combat rising thefts

Dayton Daily News – “A rise in thefts at Dayton-area libraries has prompted the public institutions to increase security to better protect inventory, especially audio-visual materials such as DVDs, CDs and video games.

Many libraries have noticed a spike in incidents since the recession began, and have spent tens of thousands of dollars on security equipment costs and the replacement of materials.

For example, the Washington-Centerville Public Library recently spent close to $25,000 on multiple security measures. Troy-Miami County Library contributed $10,000 toward its new $70,000 radio frequency identification system that prevents theft and streamlines circulation.”
