"This book recommended by thieves"

Book cover
A long-time patron donated the book, "Power down" by Ben Coes to the McGregor Public Library and said, "If you can use this book, it's yours." The story behind it is that her husband's car was stolen, and the thief took the car all the way to Texas. When he took a flight down to retrieve his car, he discovered this book was left in the trunk.
"Power down" traveled 918 miles in a stolen car and 918 miles back -- to find its home at the McGregor Public Library.
Just because you're a thief, doesn't mean you don't keep up with your reading.  (March, 2012)
