Found in a Library Book: A Tumblr of Lost Treasures

Found in a Library Book Home


The other day I was going through old photos and found a few images of items I had found in library books.


I thought it might be fun to create a public exhibit of these forgotten mementos as well as items found by others.


I made a tumblr!



My hope is Found in a Library Book becomes a community archive of lost treasures, brief messages, and underlined passages found between the pages of library books.

Have a finding you’d like to submit?

I hope you consider contributing to the collection!

    I love finding things in books–I’ll definitely check out your tumblr.

    You might enjoy the blog Forgotten Bookmarks. A gentleman who operates a used bookstore in New York state posts about the items he finds in books he has purchased–old photos, postcards, receipts, recipes, letters, etc.
