50 years later, man returns WWII book to Michigan library | MLive.com

This neat story appeared a week ago on MLive.com. From time to time these kind of things are reported by libraries and they always make me smile. 🙂

Here’s a clip of the letter and part of the story as reported on MLive. For the rest, use the link below.

HOLLAND, MI — The UPS package addressed to Diane Kooiker was non-descript. The book inside, not so much.

Kooiker, the Herrick District Library director in Holland, pulled out a tome that had been missing from shelves since 1967.

Also inside was a check to cover fees for the long overdue text and a letter detailing the absence from a Hope College alumnus, who explained he must have been researching World War II at the time.

“We enjoyed the trip down memory lane,” library director says.
