Statement from Senator Carlucci On Deadly Stabbing at Finkelstein Memorial Library

David Carlucci

A security guard, keeping others safe was viciously stabbed at the Finkelstein Memorial Library in Spring Valley, and she later died of her injuries.  I am praying for the victim's family in their time of grief. Many in our community visit the Finkelstein Memorial Library, and it's a place I have taken my own children and have always felt safe. I am extremely upset over this act of violence that incited more fear and chaos in our close-knit community.  

I will be working with the library and State officials to make sure we get our libraries whatever they need for security moving forward. Since the Monsey stabbing, I have secured State funding for the Town of Ramapo so it will be outfitted with security cameras and license plate readers."
