Every Tuesday, FOL volunteers sort through donated books that we then use to stock our library bookstore. And every Tuesday we are surprised at what we find that’s been left in the books. A small sampling includes an old postcard of cowboys, a Bridge point-count bidding card, an announcement of a 1949 concert with Leonard Bernstein, and a pressed flower. The pressed flower was in a book printed in the late 1800s!
We occasionally find items that are very personal and we make every effort to reunite these things with their owner. And if bookmarkers were dollar bills, the FOL would be rich!
What treasures will be uncovered next? Stay tuned!
