Library exhibits items people left in books

Every summer, the town library in Kysucké Nové Mesto displays a range of objects found in returned library books. The library believes that the exhibition gives owners a chance to reclaim their belongings, especially photographs, and is a lesson for other readers to take more care over what they put into borrowed books. Apart from the usual bookmarks, librarians have found condoms, cribs, jewellery, wedding announcements, and love declarations in books. Dušana Šinalová, the head of the library, told the SITA newswire that the librarians have often found money too, which they have managed to return to its rightful owners. Since last year, the library has found about 80 forgotten items in books. This year’s Lost-and-Found exhibition took place from mid-July to mid-August.
