0010507: After retiring Fortress all books/scrolls are scattered across the map
After retiring Fortress and revisiting the fortress either in adventure mode or unretiring, all books/scrolls are scattered across the map. The dwarves will not reclaim them or dump them. They can be picked up in adventure mode.
Create fortress with library and the resources for book production
Retire fortress
Unretire or visit in Adventure mode in either case the result is the same
I've noticed this happens in the area around necromancer's towers as well. I found the books, scrolls and slab scattered around the region.
No tags attached.

Items are scattered randomly upon reclaim, that is how the game works presently.
