Over 30,000 Books Missing from French National Library
A former senior curator of the library, Michel Garel, has been accused of stealing at least 100 rare old books and manuscripts. Garel denies involvement and says that he had warned his bosses over many years that rare items were going missing. Interestingly, he noted that the basement of the library's old building, was connected by a labyrinth of underground passageways to nearby antiquarian bookshops.
