St. Paul is investing $1.5 million in federal dollars into the public library system to enhance public safety.
The investment is a part of a new $10 million public safety initiative plan to reduce violent crime in the city.
People in the St. Paul community say the library is not just a place to read books — it’s a safe space and a community hub.
Not everyone walks into the library to turn a page. St. Paul resident Princess Titus calls the building booming with books a healing space.
