A rasher of uncooked bacon may not seem an ideal bookmark, but one was found in a returned library book in Worthing. Former librarian Jan Bild says she found many equally bizarre items during her 30-year career:

▶ A £10 note

▶ A shoelace

▶ A large black-and-white feather

▶ A bag of hashish in a hole gouged in the book's centre pages

▶ A pension book

▶ Love letters to a woman called Edith

▶ Vomit

▶ Photographs of grandchildren

▶ Pages in which every letter "o" had been coloured in

▶ Excrement

▶ Bank statements

▶ Spaghetti
