Officers contacted library supervisors, one of whom arrived to walk through the building with police. 

Nothing appeared to be out of place, a report said.

Garage, Car Broken Into

A resident of North Meadows Lane found his garage -- and a car inside -- had been broken into about 9:45 p.m. Sunday.

The theft was reported April 27.
