AUSTIN, Texas — The Austin Public Library in Downtown Austin is covered in red paint after vandals smeared it all over its doors and windows.

According to a security report, the vandalism happened around 1:50 a.m. Monday morning.

An official told KVUE that the Shoal Creek and Cesar Chavez sides of the library had paint splashed and graffiti written on them.

It's unclear at this time how much it will cost to clean up the paint.
