TEWKSBURY, Mass., June 12 (UPI) -- A library in Massachusetts was getting steamy, and it wasn't because people were coming in to check out "50 Shades of Grey."

Brittany Macintyre is facing prostitution charges for allegedly soliciting sex at the Tewksbury Public Library.

When an undercover police officer arrived to investigate, the 20-year-old allegedly began writing him notes about her services so that the silence of the library would be maintained.

"She handed him a pen and a piece of paper, and they conversed back and forth," Tewksbury Deputy Chief of Police John Voto told WCVB. "Ultimately she requested $60 for a sexual act."

Macintyre was arrested and charged with sexual conduct for a fee.

"It was certainly surprising that something like that would happen here," said library volunteer Dave Marcus. "It's not just a place for books; it's a place for learning and being up-to-date. It's just unfortunate that something like this happens."

This is the second time within the last year that someone has been arrested for soliciting sex at the TPL.
