Here\’s A Fun Story on all the cool stuff at the Southwest County Regional Library west of Boca Raton, FL.

dozens of photos, bookmarks [which include paper, plastic, leather, lace and pressed flowers with children\’s photos and greetings to grandma, souvenirs of bar mitzvahs, high school graduations, 50th anniversaries and prayers for those who have passed on], lottery tickets, Band-Aids, bugs and bacon.

\”One staff member found several hundred dollars in cash in an envelope inside a book,\” Pinilla said. \”She tracked down the last person who had the book and returned the money. He had just cashed a check. That person sent flowers several times as a thank you.\”
