Dear Editor,

I am writing on behalf of beleaguered library users in Maspeth who are searching for a solution to some problems at that location.

On two occasions at Maspeth Library this year, a vile, vituperative and volatile old female told an expert of cinema history to “drop dead” loudly in front of many innocent children. Shortly thereafter in the same location, the aged and nefarious Grand Avenue habitué fabricated and reported the death of a friend’s son to the same man’s father, an indication of her severe sociopathic behavior.

Despite the visible signage, the delusionary and disputable harpie enjoyed a five-course meal in front of the library’s users and staff two weeks ago. This cantankerous creature recently exploded in an unprovoked and foul-mouthed assault against me personally at the library while within children’s presence.

In addition, she uses the building’s limited seating to store her belongings all day long. This is a Homeland Security issue. God only knows what’s inside the shopping bag she’s dragged with her for days.

Another disruptive woman, a Maspeth resident with obsessive compulsive disorder, fixates on newspapers. All day long, she interrupts the library’s patrons to grasp for their publications. Two months ago, she cursed out the institution’s manager violently for closing the facility on time.

Again, this verbal attack happened in front of children. No professional deserves to be addressed in that way. My friends and I refuse to hear and witness these abuses any longer.

Whenever complaints about users’ disruptive behavior are made to the Maspeth Library’s current staff, the reaction is one of complacency and non-interference. As a result of the staff’s ineffectiveness, formal complaints are being placed with the QBPL, its Security Department, civic authorities and governmental institutions to have the two described women exorcised from the Maspeth Library, as the QBPL’s security officers did earlier this year with a verbally abusive male Maspeth resident.

Hopefully, the building’s employees will be compelled to do their jobs while living up to librarian extraordinaire Linda Czerwinski’s exceedingly high standard of professional excellence.
