12 Tales of Book Thievery

North Dakota libraries, including the BSC Library, have also been targets of this kind of thievery.  A recent example is when investigators discovered roughly 1,000 books and 20,000 individual pages of maps and documents that had been ripped from books in the home of a Great Falls, Montana, man.  Books from several North Dakota libraries were in the mix; one was from the BSC Library collection. (Note: We got it back).
