Actually, they are being stolen from just about all libraries. The reason? People feel too embarrassed to check the books out and/or they want to keep the book and don't have any money to buy a copy on their own. The culprits? Teenagers. How do I know? When I was a teenager I stole a book on witchcraft from the library. In my early 20s I felt bad and bought a copy of the same book and donated it to the library. Enough said.
