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 âsomebody 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
Hammel said he has fixed the back door to the library âand put in deadbolts.â
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.
