Store asks for return of Bible The Friends of the Library Bookstore is asking for a re- tUrn. According to Teresa Riper, president of Friends of the Li- brary, a family donated a large quantity of books to the store, located at 1244 Main St., which mistakenly included a prized family Bible. "The Bible was in German and had a wood cover," Riper said. "It's a family heirloom and is quite precious." She said a sign has been placed on the door and she has contacted one particular cus- tomer who buys German books, but with no results. "We will refund their money and give the person a gift certificate for the store as a thank-you," Riper said. The Friends of the Library also iscollecting Legos for use in the library's summer reading program, which will include a Lego Literacy component. Anyone with usable Legos, old or new, may drop them off at the bookstore, as is the case with the Bible, she said.
