Remove the Mosquito Device from the Library building! It has been active in the day for months! It is now off during the day, but is faulty and is under human control and so human error could cause it to come on again and cause damage!

The Mosquito device is an audio weapon (youth deterrent) that emits a high frequency noise that can only be heard by young people and those with sensitive hearing.

Why is this important?

It is dangerous! It is discriminatory to those under 25, it has an adverse affect on people with mental health, chronic health and disabilities such as autism and hypersensitivity to noise. There is no medical evidence that it is safe for children under 16... So could damage young ears!

How it will be delivered

To the port authority with a full case for the legal and medical grounds on which the device should be removed.

    No library should drive away kids full stop, using a device like this is just awful, especially when it can be damaging.
  • Alex T. 2014-09-08 13:06:19 +0100
    Young people should be being encouraged to read, not turned away.
  • Mark D. 2014-08-31 19:50:59 +0100
    No one should be deterred from having access to books.
