Things I’ve Found in Library Books

A couple of months ago there was an article that investigated on the bacteria found on the ten most borrowed books in one of the bigger libraries in Belgium. Turns out they found a lot of things they didn’t want to know, like herpes and cocaine.

I would like to mention there’s a soap dispenser behind the desk at our library and that I use it regularly.

But all gross thoughts aside, these are some of the things I’ve found in library books:

- sticky tape
- sand
- flour
- dried flowers
- chewing gum (chewed)
- car keys to a Lexus
- IDs
- short story (hand written, original)
- wedding invitation
- in memoriam cards
- homemade bookmarks
- homework
- library receipts (HUNDREDS)
- bills
- comic books
- medication
- dried sugary orange juice
- drawings
- photographs
- post cards
- trading cards
- bills
- prints
- bank card
- baby pictures
- bus tickets
- train tickets
- lists

a thousand and one hiding places

Until next time,
