KANSAS CITY, Mo. The Johnson County Library is searching for the owner of an old family photo it believes was mistakenly left at the library.

A library employee found the photo in the donation bin at the Lackman Library in Lenexa, Kansas.

"Because of that we don't know who dropped it off, where it came from or who it belongs to," said Josh Neff, an information specialist at the library.

The photo was left in the bin in March and the library has been holding on to it ever since.

"We have been holding on to it hoping that whoever accidentally lost it, would think to come back here and ask about it. But so far nobody has claimed it," said Neff.

Now, the library is turning to social media in hopes of finding the photo's owner. On Monday, the library posted the image on Facebook and Twitter.

"We know the power of social media. We know that it's a great way to spread the message," Neff said. "So we are hoping that power will help this photograph get back to who it belongs to."

If you know anything about the photo, please contact the library.
