It's unclear what exactly he was looking for in striking up these conversations, but it's obvious this Port Washington man was looking for more than just books at recent visits to the library.
Police were called to W.J. Niederkorn Library at 1:03 p.m. Thursday after a 48-year-old Port man was "approaching women and striking up conversations," according to police reports. The man had been warned not to do this in the past.
Officers spoke to the man, and he was inevitably banned from the library for 30 days.
Looks like he'll have to take his pickup lines elsewhere.
