The following was submitted by Paul S. Ostrow, a former mayor and library board member.
collaborative and patient efforts of Teaneck Library Director Mike
McCue, his staff, Teaneck Police Chief Bob Wilson, our detective and
juvenile bureaus and the entire TPD are to be commended. This month
long investigative effort was a focused and deliberate effort to make an
arrest and eliminate & continue to prevent criminal activity and
wrongdoing in our public library. Teaneck's library staff as well as
the hundreds of dedicated staff members of 70+ BCCLS libraries are
committed not only to the education and enjoyment of their patrons, but
to their physical and emotional comfort, safety and well being.
