Someone broke into the Valley City-Barnes County Public Library late Saturday or early Sunday and took a minimal amount of cash from a drawer, said Library Director Steve Hammel.
Hammel said â€śsomebody jimmied the back door lock and came in. There was no damage and a little cash was stolen from a drawer. It was a very inexpensive wakeup call.â€ť
Hammel said he has fixed the back door to the library â€śand put in deadbolts.â€ť
No library equipment or books were stolen or damaged. The library has little cash on hand â€“ primarily the small amount of money collected from fines, Hammel said.
