Library planned to purchase new copies of damaged books
Lois Fenker holds one of the books damaged by a vandal inside the Corvallis-Benton County Public Library as she discusses the problem with Library Director Deborah Jacobs, right. Fenke is the library's deputy director for public services.
Pages were torn and covers were removed from nine books on sex education at the Corvallis-Benton County Public Library. It appears they were vandalized inside the library. A similar incident occurred in 1992 when six books on homosexuality were vandalized. The library has a procedure in place for handling patrons complaints about materials and planned on replacing the damaged books.
