SOUTH CHARLESTON, West Virginia — The South Charleston Public Library has gotten a welcome surprise from the state.
Roger Hughes with the state Treasurer's Office presented an unclaimed property check for $16,737 to library officials on Monday.
Hughes says the money was in a CD account.
He tells The Charleston Gazette (http://bit.ly/1y0qPCZ ) that people are often surprised to learn that they have unclaimed property.
Library director Patricia Brown says the money will go to the South Charleston Public Library Foundation. She says the foundation will decide how to use the money.
