Vandals Smash Decorative Fountain at Urbana Library

Vandals destroyed a fountain at Frederick, MD’s Urbana Regional Library Friday evening. A longtime Urbana family had donated the fountain to the reading garden before moving away.

At about 9:45 a.m. Saturday, a librarian discovered the three ceramic pots that made up the fountain were smashed open, said Cpl. Jennifer Bailey, a spokeswoman for the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office.

Bailey said the damage to the fountain was less than $500. But the emotional damage is more severe, said Elizabeth Cromwell, the Frederick County Public Libraries’ spokeswoman. Story from the Gazette.
