Anyone who’s worked in a library in any capacity knows patrons leave behind all sorts of things, some strange, some amusing and some that just make you scratch your head and wonder. Brian Herzog of Swiss Army Librarian has created a Flickr group where we can share these little treasures with each other. Similar to Found Magazine, but just for libraries. Go take a look, join up and share the things you’ve found in your library.
I’m not uploading anything that seemed personally-identifiable: peoples’ first and last names, phone numbers, email addresses, account login and passwords – and there were a frighteningly large number of these.
That’s good advice any contributor should follow. Now go take a picture of that cheesecake pan someone left in the stacks & upload it! Have fun!
