I did have a stack of books along that wall on the floor, & the bottom book in the stack molded-- don't know why, though. The other books in the stack were fine.
Is it possible that you might have a cat or a dog that could have ~relieved~ itself there; or maybe it's spillage from some really terrific party you threw?
Make sure the bookcase has some sort of center support mechanism. With a 4-foot span, the shelves will sag under the weight of the books (unless they're about an inch thick).
2: I have a cat! I did not think of that. If I had caught him relieving himself on my books, well, he probably would have hid from me for days. I hope that's not what happened, but it could be.
I actually am looking at some shelves that are 24" wide & I was going to put two of them side by side to make 4 feet. I'm glad you mention it, though, because I have some 4 foot wall shelving that I made myself & I might need to support it a little more.
4: Thanks for the link! What a great group that is-- glad to have found it.
