Another great Library story, this one from the land of incredible stories, USA.
A thief was stealing our of print reference materials from East Meadow Public Library and selling them off on ebay. Staff stumbled across the ebay account selling thousands of book when they did a search on ebay for their missing books. Sure enough there were the books they had lost amongst others sold by the seller.
Information was provided to the police and an arrest was made. I known lots of librarians who would have made great investigators. There’s a dogged determination to find the truth of a topic that means they are often willing to check in some unusual places. Miss Marple would have made a wonderful librarian.
