Burglars redecorate Vermont library, police say


Police in the Vermont town of Barton said burglars did not steal any books when they broke into the town library, but they rearranged the furniture. Vermont State Police said the furniture was stacked in the center of the library floor in a pyramid about 20 feet high. Other furniture was stacked on top of bookshelves sometime between Monday night and Tuesday midmorning. The only thing missing was a date stamp used to check out books. Police said nothing appeared to have been broken or vandalized, and there was no sign of a forced entry.
