Easton Public Library’s lawn sign exhibit, “Voices of Diversity,” was stolen from the library lawn over the holiday weekend. The exhibit, which has been on display since early spring and can also be accessed online, features inspirational quotes about diversity and inclusion from some of the world’s most valued diverse voices. The quotes were submitted by students, town employees, and other community members.
“I know there are a few residents who tried to stop the exhibit from the beginning, but I am shocked that someone would stoop so low as to actually steal the signs from the Lawn,” said Library Director Lynn Zaffino. “I am amazed that someone would have the audacity to remove them in broad daylight directly in front of the Police Department.”
The final group of quotes are currently at the printers and will be on display on the library lawn in the next few weeks. “We are so grateful to everyone who submitted quotes for this wonderful and inspiring exhibit,” Zaffino added.
The theft has been reported to the police, who are looking into the matter. If you have any information about this incident, please contact the Easton Police Department at 203-268-4111.
