It's never too late to return your library books!

Have you ever found a library book years after it was due? Maybe one that belonged to your older brother or sister, or even (parents) from when you were in elementary school? It happens all the time... even to Ms. Claire!

Imagine our surprise when we received a package last week addressed to the Emerson Library. Inside there was a book with a note from a librarian in Portland, Oregon! It said:

This book came across my desk. I am not sure where it came from, but it looks like it has been checked out from your library for over 20 years. Thought you might want it back.

Alana H. Carson
Reader Services Librarian

We are so pleased to have this book back in our library, exactly 33 years overdue! We'd love your overdue books back too. We promise: it's never too late to return those books!
