This is why you should crack open a book from time to time. You might find treasure.

A book was recently donated recently to the Pleasant Valley Library for their book drive. It's not uncommon to find book marks, birthday cards or even cash from time to time. The pleasant Valley Library has just about seen it all but one of their latest donations really left them scratching their heads.

"We don't know who donated it but it's definitely the most unique donation we've ever received."

My first thought was that it was a vape. It turns out it was a small flask disguised as a cell phone. I can only assume this belonged to a college student.

The library still plans on selling the book without the flask.
