BATH — Bath Savings Institution on Tuesday replaced the $1,200 stolen from Patten Free Library the morning of Oct. 23.

Police have not found the person who broke into the Summer Street library and took a donation jar containing about $1,200 that had been collected for educational materials since Sept. 1.

“We were incredibly disheartened to hear the news of the break-in over the weekend,” bank President & CEO Glenn Hutchinson said in a statement. “When we heard about the theft of the money donated for the Children’s Program, we knew we needed to help. The program should not suffer from this criminal activity. We are glad we can do our part.”
