The homeless man who allegedly lived in the library, forced to leave after incident

A mentally ill, homeless man is believed to have called the Sherburne Memorial Library home for the last year. Head librarian Gail Weymouth described him as black, in his 20s and possibly mentally ill. He has been seen around the library regularly since last October, often using the computer and the library's refrigerator, during operating hours.

Nov. 30, however, the library was forced to take action when he reportedly lost control of his bowels inside the library, forcing an evacuation.

The library issued a two-year, no-trespass order against him.
Weymouth reported the incident to the Killington Select Board, last Tuesday.
The man, called Greg,Weymouth and Second Constable Whit Montgomery say wasn't a threat to the public and was just looking for a place to sleep.
Greg can still be seen walking along River Road or Route 4 at all times of day and lives in any shelter he can find.
Weymouth has requested $500 more in the library's 2013 budget for surveillance cameras.
