Librarian finds vintage gun in donated library book

An library employee  in Valparaiso, Indiana library found a gun inside a hollowed-out book donated to the branch.

According to police, the book Outerbridge Reachhad a little spot carved out of its pages to hold the gold, wooden-handled gun, reports the NWITimes.com.

“Somebody just opened it up and said, ‘Oh my,’ ” said the  assistant library director.

Assistant Library Director Phyllis Nelson says an employee at the Valparaiso branch of the Porter County Public Library discovered the antique-looking firearm when she opened the book earlier this week.

Police describe the weapon as a gold, wooden handled, 31-caliber, single shot, black powder gun.

Nelson says librarians have no way of knowing who donated the book. She says thousands of books are donated each month and no records are kept.

Police have determined the gun was not stolen.
