Books stolen from Weyauwega library
Library Director Kristi Pennebecker said estimates will be sought for security cameras.
It was in May that library staff noticed books were missing.
That is because there were inter-library loan requests for titles of books that were supposed to be on the shelves of the Weyauwega Public Library but were not.
"Soon, there seemed to be quite a few, so we did an inventory and found out how many more books were missing," Pennebecker said.
In all, they found 74 books to not be there.
The Weyauwega Police Department was contacted, and officers watched sites like Craigslist to see if any of the stolen books turned up there for sale.
They did not.
The stolen books are of the young adult genre.
"Every once in awhile you lose a couple books here and there," she said.
However, the inventory turned up more than just a couple.
Pennebecker said the library cannot afford the electronic scanning system that some libraries have.
She said that on a positive note, the library's summer programs have been well attended.
