Police said the bizarre drama began about 7:30 p.m. Saturday, when Lafferty pushed his girlfriend into a wall at home during what was described as an unprovoked outburst of violence.

But Monday morning many friends of the 303 Clinton St. facility were shocked when they saw a photo of the main reading room showing numerous shattered windows, the floor littered with shards of glass. A potted plant that got caught in the line of fire drooped sadly under the weight of the debris.
