"The Rawlins Library has thousands of dollars in missing items, according to the library’s director.
Dating back to 2001, the public library currently has 3,100 items declared missing, said Robin Schrupp. She said if every item missing was valued at $20 each, that would mean the library has lost $62,000 in materials.
Despite the backlog of missing material, Schrupp said most library users are reliable.
“The vast majority of Rawlins Library patrons are responsible citizens and adhere to borrowing limits,” she said. “They return materials in a timely manner and are respectful of the materials in their possession.”
