$100. When I called the most recent patron, she wasn’t home, but her husband took the call. Respecting privacy, I simply said, “We have something at the front desk that she may have left in a book.” His response, “Has she been using cash as a bookmark again?” —Amy Gillespie, Hill Top Prep Library
I worked as a page/clerk in a public library for a couple of years. I handled a lot of books. Honestly, I can’t ever remember finding anything interesting stuck inside one. I’m sure there were things … but 35 years on I have very few interesting stories about working in the library.
