From the CBC:
The Calgary Central Library attracts a lot of people — but not all of them are there to check out a book.
Earlier this year, police rounded up more than two dozen people accused of selling drugs right in front of the building.
Now the library is hoping to solve the problem by making changes to its design. Working with the Calgary Police Service, the branch plans to install metal screens in its exterior alcoves.
“They’re much more friendly than chain links,” said Calgary Public Library CEO, Bill Ptacek.
