At-large City Councilor Steve Murphy predicts the items we know about that are missing from the BPL are only "the mere tip of the iceberg" and is calling on all of the library's trustees to follow President Amy Ryan and submit their resignations immediately.
"In the coming days as the investigation continues, I suspect that we will find many other items have disappeared," Murphy said in a statement. Murphy, chair of the council's public-safety committee, had scheduled a hearing on BPL security for next Monday even before Ryan announced her resignation, mere hours after library trustees had voiced their confidence in her.
"It is imperative that the Chairman of the Board of Trustees Jeff Rudman and the other current board members follow President Ryan's lead and step down immediately, so that Mayor Walsh can move forward and appoint new leadership to guide the BPL through this crisis," he said.
The committee hearing begins at 11 a.m. on Monday in the council's fifth-floor chambers in City Hall.
