I would think a library would include the booklet if they had it.
Once I went to pick up a brand new box set I had on reserve from Portland
OR's public library. I was to be the second person to check it out. It had
been on reserve prior to the release date, so it had never been out in the
public stacks. All the booklets that accompanied the CDs were missing -
those hadn't been barcoded, only the main book had. I asked if they had
been stored somewhere, but the library didn't do that with their CDs. It
was very likely that the first person to check it out had stolen these
I suggested the librarians could at least ask this patron about the
booklets, perhaps the attention would discourage him in the future. But the
librarians weren't interested, and they're not police after all. Pillaging
from libraries is common enough, but it was shocking to see it done so
quickly to a fine new acquisition!
