A gun deal in the library sealed Monroe County Public Library (MCPL) Director Cindy Gray’s fate.

The MCPL Board of Directors will announce Gray’s future with the public institution at a meeting tonight. Board members will do so after having received an allegation that she sold a handgun to a library staffer in the public building.

Gray allegedly brought the licensed handgun into the facility on two occasions – once to show it to the employee and again to make the sale.
