Sticky Fingers – Also Known as Thievery

Three years ago, prior to cataloging the books in the Public Library Reading Room, four books by author Ben Rehder were “taken” by a patron.  They had been in circulation for four months at the time, and were very popular.  This came back to mind this week, when miraculously, the four books turned up at the Port Isabel Public Library.

It appears that some of our patrons have “sticky fingers.”  They seem to feel the need to take items from the library, evidently thinking that the library won’t miss them.  These include books, magazines, newspapers, and even pages from them.  DVDs and other items are also taken.  It doesn’t seem like much of a big deal, so why not do it?

To see this story in print, pick up a copy of the Nov. 3 edition of the Port Isabel South Padre Press or check out our E-edition by clicking here.
