Library people love to help others, and we also like to investigate to find information. So when the Glencoe Public Library staff found a purse, hidden inside a wall of the library, they kept investigating until they found the woman who had owned it!
A dental appointment slip, a high school attended only year, and some good old-fashioned internet research helped to track down the owner – now living in California.
The story was first reported here, filled with clues the library staff had collected and asking people to contribute their help. The exciting find, along with an interview with the owner of the purse, is detailed here.
Libraries are filled with mystery and adventure!
