Library official say they know who is responsible and are only interested in being reimbursed for the damages to property provided by taxpayer dollars.

“The person responsible for the damage needs to fess up, even if you do it anonymously. The chair cost the taxpayer $15. Please reimburse the county for the damage you have caused. Accidents happen, we understand that, but we do not understand why we didn’t get a simple phone call of apology,” they said.
