KSTP: St. Paul looks to libraries as next frontier of community safety

KSTP.com - July 21, 2022

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.
