New Webinar: "The 2017 Clovis, New Mexico Library Shootings: The Teenage Attacker Reveals His Motives"

The 2017 Clovis, New Mexico Library Shootings:
The Teenage Attacker Reveals His Motives
Part of the Library 2.0 Service, Safety, and Security Series with Dr. Steve Albrecht


By all outside accounts, Nathaniel Jouett was a typical 16-year-old kid, living in Clovis, New Mexico, and going to high school. But on the inside, he was depressed, suicidal, bullied, and angry at the world. On August 28, 2017, he walked into the Clovis-Carver Library, in downtown Clovis, New Mexico, went into the public restroom and loaded a pistol he had stolen from his father’s unlocked gun safe at home. He walked through the library and shot and killed two female library staffers and wounded four patrons, including a 10-year-old boy.

He surrendered to police and was tried, convicted, and sentenced to life in prison without a chance at parole. We know what happened. This webinar will discuss why it happened and what library leaders and employees can do to balance better facility and staff security with full patron access. This session is not about “predicting violence” or, “Does this person fit a 'profile'?” It’s about assessing warning signs and pre-attack behaviors.

This 60-minute training webinar is presented by Library 2.0 and hosted by trainer, author, and library service, safety, and security expert, Dr. Steve Albrecht. A handout copy of the presentation slides will be available to all who participate.  


    • What does Dr. Albrecht’s thorough review of Nathaniel Jouett’s civil trial deposition tell us about threats, threat assessment and management, and library security?
    • What did Jouett’s court-appointed child psychiatrist have to say about his interviews with him?
    • What did the civil attorney who represented the surviving victims have to say about the case?
