Mystery at the Library

This was fun!

Roughly translated from the article in Lokalavisa - Sør-Østerdal, 21.07.2012 :

Mystery at the Library

Chief librarian Kari Lise Hagen suddenly discovered three mysterious apples.

There are strange and mysterious things happening at the library in Trysil centrum these days. - One apple was placed on the reference desk, another one on a shelf between some books, and the third was found with the children’s books, says Kari Lise Hagen.
- It’s not just that they’re apples, either. They’re wearing clothes or coats, or what you may call it. Whoever’s left them here, is a very skilled crafter, says Hagen. On the question of what she first thought when she discovered them, she answers that she thought she might have an admirer amongst the users of the library, but she’s read so many books herself,she thought they might even be poisonous..?
– It would’ve been fun to find out who it was that had given this gift to the library. It’s really nice and fun. I’d like to thank whoever it is, she says.
- They are decorative, and they smell very good. I’ve placed them all on the reference desk, and there are quite a few who’ve made remarks about them, says KLH.
- It will be difficult to find out who left them. There are many users who borrow books about crafts, and there are very many skilled crafters in Trysil. Thank you very much to whoever did this, this was really nice and I am very curious about who this might be, says Hagen.

Yes, I'm the maker/leaver. And yes, I did tell her about it - afterwards. But it was fun - and I'd do it again in a heartbeat. It's not about getting in the papers or anything like that - it's about giving something to someone, just because.

Why not? Spread a little joy, make someone smile. Come to think of it. why don't you - yes, YOU - join me? (And if you do, I'd love to hear about it. Leave a comment or send me an email.)
