For the third week in a row, mysterious visitors have wreaked havoc in the Adrian Branch Library.  The pattern of weekend rampages has the Librarian at a loss as to what to do next.  Chief of Police, Shawn Langseth, is also perplexed.  The latest incident is, well, odd, to say the least.

"I had extra Valentine decorations and materials set out for Monday," said Librarian Meredith Vaselaar, "yet when I came in on Monday morning, the materials were scattered and the decorations were laid out on the floor."  Although the decorations were on the floor, it did not appear to be a completely random act.  "It appears that the perpetrators had a definite plan in mind," explained Chief Langseth, "but it is unclear if the materials were placed in a deliberate pattern, or if the perpetrators were interrupted before they could complete their task."

"All I can say is that this is very frustrating," Vaselaar said, "and I am getting tired of having to clean up an extra mess at the library every Monday morning before we open!"  It is hoped that someone can come forward to shed some light on the incidents.  

In the meantime, local law enforcement, along with Library staff, are working to improve security in the building.  There has been some talk of adding secret hidden cameras inside, in hopes of catching the perpetrators in the act.  (So, if you know who the perpetrators are, please do not tell them about the secret hidden cameras.)

With security being tightened, it is hoped that the perpetrators will not be able to continue with their rampage for very much longer.  That would be just fine for Librarian Vaselaar, who indicated we should quote her as she says:  "I am NOT amused!"
