DUXBURY, Mass. — A staff member at the Duxbury Free Library found a ritzy bookmark in a returned book recently--a $1,200 wad of cash.

A librarian sorting through books that had just been returned noticed one hardcover work that looked a bit askew. She opened it up to find a dozen $100 bills. Library staff tracked down the borrower, who arrived quickly and expressed a mixture of relief and horror at her mistake.
