The Nanuet Library Board met on Wednesday evening to discuss the issue of registered sex offenders having access to the Nanuet Library.
Two representatives from the Rockland County Office of Probation, Jennifer Williams and Ed Korn, attended the meeting to provide the Board and the community information about the registered sex offenders in the community.
Williams explained that normally, registered sex offenders are not prohibited from entering and using the resources of a public library. However, since the Nanuet Library is located on school property it is illegal for register sex offenders on probation to enter this library.
The Rockland County Office of Probation will begin informing those under their supervision that they are not able to enter the Nanuet Library. The library will take responsibility for providing these patrons with library cards that allow them to access other libraries in the area that are not on school grounds.
Staff members and patrons of the Nanuet Library are not held responsible for identifying or recognizing registered sex offenders coming into the library.
