Quotation Of The Week: Where's The Library Art?

What’s This? A newish feature. Each week, we’re going to pick a newsworthy or huh?-worthy or whoa-worthy quotation that stuck with us.

OK, What’s This Quotation? This week it was revealed that the Boston Public Library is missing two prints — one is valued at $600,000, the other at up to $30,000. City police and the FBI are investigating, but library leadership maintains hope the pieces "have simply been misfiled."

The missing art has raised questions about adequate security for the library system's vast and valuable collections.

Where Can I Find Out More About This Topic? Here's our first story on the missing art, and an Associated Press follow-up on police saying it may be an inside job. Radio Boston discussed the mystery on Thursday.
