That is the question that is being asked at the North Vancouver City Library and the North Vancouver RCMP.

On July 24, 2017 a very honest North Vancouver resident returned a significant amount of money to the library after cash was discovered in a borrowed book. Library records were checked and no recent user of the book is missing money. The Canadian currency has been turned over to the North Vancouver RCMP.

It is a mystery of how and when the money got into the book and who would be missing the money now, said Cpl Richard De Jong of the North Vancouver RCMP. If the rightful owner of the cash can provide details on the amount of money along with the name of book, police would be pleased to return the money to them!

What would you do if you discovered a significant amount of cash in a library book you just signed out? Police and library staff commend the honourable actions of the person who turned the money over to officials in hopes the rightful owner could be located.

The North Vancouver RCMP can be contacted at 604-985-1311, referencing file # 2017-19143.
