Vt. library bathrooms clogged by drug needles

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) -- A Vermont library is resorting to locking its public restrooms to curb a persistent problem of drug paraphernalia clogging the drains.

Burlington's Fletcher Free Library hopes to have locksmiths complete the work this week.

Library officials say the bathrooms on the mezzanine level of the library were closed three weeks ago for the third time after needles and other drug paraphernalia clogged the drains.

The Burlington Free Press reports (http://bfpne.ws/1tBmXZ9 ) that once the locks are installed, library patrons will have to exchange their library card or other identification for a key to the bathrooms. That policy mirrors one already in place for using the handicapped-accessible restroom.

The clogged drains were noticed before they could cause water damage to the bathrooms.
