    Re: some of the books of...

    "Some library books were stolen" does leave the possibility that they belonged to different libraries. If they books were all stolen from one library, you could use "Some of the library's books were stolen".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
