Alderman wants sex offenders banned from libraries in summer

“Chicago’s 78 public libraries would be off-limits to registered sex offenders during summer months, when the buildings tend to be overrun with children, under a pre-emptive public safety crackdown proposed by a Southwest Side alderman. Ald. Marty Quinn (13th) said he’s the father three young daughters acting out of concern for his own children and the 600 kids who participated in the summer library program at West Lawn Library, 4020 W. 63rd St.” (via Sun Times)

Sex offenders’ access to Jefferson Parish libraries to be restricted

“Some sex offenders would be restricted from entering Jefferson Parish public libraries under a policy that the Parish Council will consider adopting Wednesday. The proposal comes seven months after Gov. Bobby Jindal signed a law generally banning the offenders from libraries. The law, Act 693 of the 2012 legislative session, makes it a crime for a person who has been convicted of sexually abusing a person younger than 13 to enter library property or loiter within 1,000 feet of it. But it exempts offenders who comply with local library policy and directs local libraries to implement a policy by Jan. 1.”
