The Missouri River Regional Library still has a few unclaimed items found after last month's tornado, and a few more are on the way.

Natalie Newville, MRRL's marketing manager, said the library has not set a cutoff date for how long it will keep items because staff know there's a lot of people still cleaning up and trying to find a place to live.

Last she checked, Newville said, the library had a few photos and a painting that were still unclaimed.

She said Friday that more items have been brought in and staff were working to get them scanned.

Annie Schulte, owner of Encore Department Store at 330 E. Capitol Ave., said she had seven photos and a property deed that had been found.

Schulte posts lost photos on Facebook then takes them to the library, where people can pick them up.

One photo she posted Wednesday afternoon was identified Thursday. She posted another photo Thursday morning that as of Friday had not been identified online.

Found items can be turned in at MRRL, 214 Adams St. in Jefferson City. People looking for lost items can stop by the library or call 573-634-6064.
