Library Vandalized Again

Vandals again damaged the Sylvan Way branch of the Kitsap Regional Library,
breaking out six windows late Wednesday or early Thursday.

Someone threw large rocks through the windows between 8 p.m. Wednesday and 7
a.m. Thursday, a library spokeswoman said. Glass and debris littered the
eastern part of the library, which includes the children’s reading area and
the nonfiction area.

Four windows were broken earlier this week. Each of the 10 windows will cost
between $800 and $1,000 to replace, library officials said.

The areas where the vandalism occurred are closed to library patrons.
A computer monitor at the library also was stolen Tuesday afternoon in broad
daylight, officials said. 

Repeated thefts and vandalism at the library and nearby View Ridge
Elementary School may lead to a joint agreement between the library and
Bremerton School District for hiring added security in the area, officials

The library is offering an unspecified reward for any information leading to the capture of the culprits. Anyone with information is asked to call (360) 405-9158.
