Tales in the LibraryMystery teasers are little stories where you need to figure out what happened based on the given clues.
"These are very strong accusations. Are you sure, Jorden?" the librarian asked.
"Yes, I'm positive. Yesterday, I saw Beth put one of these," Jorden held up a small envelope containing white powder, "between the X and Y volumes of the Encyclopedia. After she left, a big guy in a leather jacket came in and took the envelope out and put money in. Today, after Beth came, I intercepted the envelope."
"What do you have against Beth? You obviously want to get her in trouble."
How did the librarian know Jorden was lying?
HintWhen was the last time you looked at a set of encyclopedias?
AnswerThe X and Y volumes of the library's encyclopedia are together in one book, a common practice, therefore she couldn't have put anything between them.
