Drunken driver crashes into Blue Island library, police say

BLUE ISLAND, Ill. — A drunken driver crashed into the Blue Island Public Library early Tuesday.

Police said the crash occurred about 2:15 a.m. Tuesday at the library at 2433 York St.

When police arrived on the scene, a woman was still inside the car. Police said alcohol was "a contributing factor" to the crash. The woman was arrested and cited.

The library will remain closed Tuesday and Wednesday. Library staffers said up to 1,000 visitors use the city's only public library each day — especially for air conditioning on a hot summer day, free wifi and free summer meals for children.
