next to the walnut creek library with a no lock or chain. while 88 dullest is not a lot to pay for a bike if tickets stolen that is $88 down the drain. 28 bikes have been stolen from your the library most of the bikes were locked when they were stolen. the problem is not just with the bike being stolen in sight of this library electronics have been vanishing often it is because people have been leaving the is the tape recorder i found on one table over at a different table with his laptop. the truth is there is no such thing as a safe place. all you need to do is turn your back for a second and then it is gone. the interesting part, people ask me why i am here and they seem surprised that thefts happened at
