Return that library book!


A News Story from Oklahoma says next week is "National Return Borrowed Book Week".
"Certain books just tend to disappear, like computer books and books on witchcraft."
Tahlequah librarian Lyn Arter agreed some books do seem to be more tempting to book thieves. "The Bible was stolen five times during my first five years here," said Arter. "I guess they'd never read the 'Thou shalt not.'"


A few years ago I did a search on the UNC OPAC for "Steal this book". Seven out of ten copies were marked as "missing."
