An Indiana library troubled by smoking, drinking and other bad behavior that often prompted calls to police says things are looking up.
Monroe County Public Library officials say efforts to enforce a no-smoking policy on library grounds have made it easier for visitors to use the library's services.
Director Sara Laughlin tells The Herald-Times (http://bit.ly/M7lWpw ) the tougher smoking policy means no more cigarette butts to sweep up each morning and no people lining up by the doorway.
The library has been a meeting spot for individuals from nearby homeless shelters and led to some unwanted activity.
Community relations manager Margaret Harter says incidents have dropped from nearly 14 a week to less than 4 since mid-March as the library has better enforced its rules.
