Rare books recovered. was 'stolen from horticultural library'
A number of rare and valuable books were missing this week from the horticultural library at Planting Fields Arboretum. I'll post more info and a list when I have that available...
Yes, the back door of the library was open
Yes, the rare book room was unlocked
Yes, at least two people checked the whole library for said books.
But things can be missed in a panic...
all the missing books have now been accounted for- some on the reference shelf, some in the stacks, and some just out of place...
The rare book room now has a new lock and all volumes are being photographed for easier ID.
Sometimes a scare like that has a positive impact!
Thanks for your concern :)
