'Valuable' Item Found in Arlington Public Library Donation

Did you donate something to an Arlington library last week? If so, you may have left something valuable behind.

Arlington librarians are hoping to solve a mystery, and it’s not one they've read in a Nancy Drew novel.

Last week, someone dropped off material for the Friends of the Library book sale and tucked inside was “something of value,” said Peter Golkin, Arlington Public Library spokesman. Volunteers sorting the items found the material.

“This was kind of hidden, so this person who donated didn’t even realize what was in there, and we would like to give it back to them,” Golkin said.

Golkin wouldn’t give away any more clues about the item so that librarians can verify the true owner.

“But you can say the valuable material is tucked away in a safe, so we aren’t taking any chances there,” Golkin said.
