Worker Admits Stealing $163,582 in Yonkers Overdue Library Fines


Yonkers Main Public Library

The Westchester County DA today announced a guilty plea by a woman in one of the stranger, and frankly, sadder, non-violent crimes in a long time around here.

Margo Reed, a former employee of the Yonkers Public Library at 1 Larkin Center, is accused of pocketing overdue book fines from library patrons to the tune of $163,582 from 2004-2007.

That’s a lot of change.

Said District Attorney Janet DiFiore, “With the limited resources and tight budgets that exist today throughout government, this kind of crime directly impacts children, students, the elderly and anyone who looks to the public library system as a place of knowledge and enjoyment.”

Sentencing will be May 3rd, 2012.
