Here’s a great story about a University of Wisconsin library book that resurfaced after 75 years. I wonder if it was listed as “lost” in the catalog, or if it was never included when they switched over from cards.

The due date slip from this long overdue volume.
Note the due date: 13 January 1938.

One thought on “Overdue.

  1. I am sad that the BPL doesn’t stamp these cards anymore. You just get a computer-printed receipt tucked in one of your books. It deprives you of the pleasure of seeing when your book was last used.
