An interesting discovery was made on the shelves at a local library this week – and it wasn’t a book. According to the Director of the Washington Public Library, Debbie Stanton, high school volunteers found syringes hidden on shelves in the children’s area of the library. She adds she thinks it may have been someone who happened to find a bag of needles and did this as a joke, due to most of them still being in their original packaging, unused. The police were contacted and the needles were disposed of at Beans Pharmacy.
