Books given to the La Grange Park Public Library for donation get dropped off with some regularity. Some are added to the library's collection, others are sold off, and some find their way into the trash.
A trip to the trash bin might have been the case with one particular book that was dropped off for donation at the library if it wasn't for Circulation Services Director Ursula Stanek.
Stanek, who grew up in Germany and moved to the United States at age 21, noticed something a little different about this book—it was marked, "Geheim!" It's the German word for secret.
