Surprise in the Mail: Patron Returns Book 40 Years Overdue

We received a nice surprise in the mail!  We always appreciate patrons returning books – even if it is 40 years later!

 

Note Transcribed below:

OUR DAUGHTER SEEMED TO FORGET TO RETURN THIS BOOK 40+ YEARS AGO. HER COPY WHICH WE FOUND IN AN OLD BOX OF HER SCHOOL BOOKS WAS FAIRLY WORN SO WE PURCHASED A NEW ONE FOR THE LIBRARY.  SORRY FOR THE TARDINESS OF THIS TRANSACTION BUT WE DIDN’T KNOW WHAT SHE HAD BOXED AWAY…

TOO EMBARRASSED TO BE KNOWN.
