CINCINNATI -- More protesters plan to gather Wednesday night in opposition of the proposed sale of the North Building of the Downtown branch of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County.
On Monday, a former staff member was arrested as he passed out fliers expressing opposition to the sale. By Monday evening, the charges against Charles Campbell were dropped and library officials apologized for the incident.
The security guard who arrested Campbell was suspended while the library investigates the incident.
"I am pleased that they have at least partially come to their senses," Campbell said. "However, I'm very disappointed that an individual employee -- a security guard -- has been held responsible and suspended for the failures of this library administration and board."
