F is for Found (and Friends) #AtoZchallenge
Odd things are often used for bookmarks and librarians often document their discoveries. I have found recipes, pressed flowers, photos, and shopping lists. My author friend, Angelica Carpenter (librarian emeritus Arne Nixon Library) told me the two oddest things she found was a piece of bacon and a bag of cocaine tied with a ribbon!
There are websites devoted to these finds and today I’ll share a few. They all seem to have a story to tell.

Who are these people?
To see more interesting items found in library books here are a few sites to check out:
Found, Library Style is where Oakland, CA librarian, Sharon McKellar, posts some of her interesting finds.
website From Found In a Library Book
Found Magazine which accepts submissions from readers around the world.
Have you ever found something interesting in a library book?
This post is part of the A to Z blog challenge where people post thematically through the alphabet during the month of April.
Because I am writing about Library Love and today’s letter is F, I’d like to encourage you to become a Friend of your local library. Libraries need all the friends they can get these days – especially because many don’t understand their value to society,
