Some good, some bad

Today one of our regulars came to ask me for help with ebooks. He said "Do you know anything about Overdrive [our ebook provider]? I've never used it before. I checked this book out and I don't know how to download it." The book he had checked out was Kraken by China MiƩville. A recommendation I wrote for that very ebook was posted earlier this week on the library homepage. Coincidence? I think not.

Wandering the stacks, I found just the front and back covers of Samsung Galaxy S4 for Dummies, no innards. Apparently someone has figured out which part of the book sets off the alarm at the front door. Seamus the Boss of Security is on it--I'm sure the book is long-gone, but maybe he caught the perpetrator on camera.

  1. Ooh, NICE! Even better than one of your display books getting checked out!

    But the Smart Thief is not a good thing. I hope your other books stay safe!
