What started out as a disaster for the Prince George Public Library turned into the “feel good story of the week”.

On Thursday, thieves made off with a projector that was out for various programs this weekend, such as one intended to lure astronaut Colonel Chris Hadfield into stopping by.

Communications Coordinator Andrea Palmer says things turned around when one of the librarians mentioned the thievery to a stranger while walking her dog and that stranger turned out to be the interim GM for Spruce Credit Union, who then bought a new projector for the library and had it set-up immediately.

Palmer says security at the library has been beefed up.
