The director of the Leavenworth Public Library says a staff member investigated a report of inappropriate activity earlier this week on the library grounds but found nothing improper.

“We didn't see anything ourselves,” Matthew Nojonen said.

He said the incident, which was said to have involved two people, was reported by a patron.

During a meeting of the Leavenworth City Commission, Commissioner Nancy Bauder said she had heard about the incident Tuesday.

Leavenworth Police Chief Pat Kitchens said his department was not contacted about the incident Tuesday, but authorities saw information about it on social media.

“We were sort of monitoring it,” he said.

Nojonen said library staff members did not report the matter to police because they did not witness anything inappropriate.

Even though staff did not see anything wrong in this case, Nojonen said patrons are encouraged to report things they believe are improper so staff can take action.

“We always ask that patrons report anything inside or outside the building to us immediately,” he said.

Nojonen acknowledged that people sometimes do not follow the rules while at the library.

“Our approach is to always enforce our rules inside the building and outside the building,” he said.

At times, people have been given trespass warnings because of their behavior at the library, Nojonen said.
