Missing Books #2

Though it wasn't successful in getting any of the books back, the "Missing" sign I created did draw student attention and was a good conversation-starter, so we are going to try again with another set of books.  I also made it more colorful and did not only include books that were brand new when they vanished.  We shall see if it works!
