What happened to the library's books?

The Casa Verdugo Library has been sacked. When the library reopened after being remodeled, the majority of the books were gone. The wonderful book collection compiled over a period of 27 years by librarian Mary Alice Wollam is gone. Now only a small wall of books make up the library.

Our lovely library has been turned into a cavernous study hall. This is very sad for book-lovers who like to peruse the books and choose different ones of interest. At a time when resources are not there for libraries, why are the books already in a good collection being discarded?
