Missouri First Lady Sheena Greitens has found a treasure trove in the governor's mansion storage locker.

Greitens says she heard that there might be some children's books left over from past events at the mansion. She hoped to find enough to hand out at an Easter egg event next month.

But when she arrived in the storage locker, Greitens says she was "blown away" to find a mountain of about 20 boxes full of hundreds of children's books from Scholastic.

The first lady said she plans to donate the books, mostly to foster care facilities in Missouri.

Trigger Warning is a term used to warn someone about potentially harmful reading material. It's also the title of Neil Gaiman's newest collection of short-fiction.

Digital privacy bills waiting for Nixon's approval

May 28, 2014

A bill that would keep information about those who check out e-books or other digital resources private is headed to Gov. Jay Nixon's desk.   

It also makes it so any third party involved with library records must disclose information of those people who use the libraries' facilities. Many of these third parties provide electronic services to libraries.

E-books and other digital resources would be considered "library materials." Other traditional materials are already covered by this type of protection.
