KWTX reports that the Salado Public Library has set up a "Lost and Found" hoping to reunite dozens of items lost during the tornado with their owners.

Lost and Found

The library created the lost and found following the tornado and since have had a steady flow of items being brought in. The director of the library, Jeanie Lively, tells KWTX, “Military albums, birth certificates, baby albums, you name it, we’ve found it.”  

The library received photos and documents along with other items like stuffed animals, wedding veils, and plaques and decided to make a lost and found corner in the library for those hoping to be reunited with their lost valuables. The library staff says many families have come in to reclaim their belongings, but many items still remain and more stuff continues to show up daily.

Word of Mouth

Many folk may not be aware of the lost and found section at the library, so getting word to those folks is important. The library staff says they will continue to keep the lost and found for as long as possible and currently have no plans for any of the unclaimed items.

If you've lost items during the tornado, the Salado Public Library may have some of those items in their lost and found. They are open Monday through Friday from 10a to 6p and weekends 10a to 5p on Saturdays.

The library is still taking any found items.

Top 20 Restaurants Central Texans Wish Would Come to Temple

A while back, I asked the good people of Temple if they could picture a good restaurant to fill the lot on North General Bruce Drive where the soon to be torn down Long John Silver's stood.

This was before it was announced that a Dutch Bros. Coffee location would open there (which was one of the places I predicted as a contender in our article).

So now Dutch Bros. is open in that spot, but the responses to my survey were interesting because they paint a picture of just how diverse Temple's population is. People recommended some familiar restaurants with locations in the surrounding area, but also a few I'd never even heard of.

Here are the top 20 results of the survey. Let's see what the good people of Temple are craving!
