Clovis library

Libraries are safe places. However, on Monday afternoon, a teen entered the library in Clovis, New Mexico and opened fire. He shot 6 people before quietly surrendering to police. Library employees Krissie Carter and Wanda Walters were killed. Our hearts go out to the families, Clovis library, and the community. Reports are that the teen had been experiencing anxiety and suicidal thoughts.

If you or someone you know is struggling, please know that you're not alone.
