Return Your Borrowed Books at Your Local Wyoming Library!

Mar 4, 2024

According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the record for the longest overdue library book was set in 1956, when a book about the Archbishop of Bremen was returned by Professor Sir John Plumb to a library in the U.K. after being checked out 288 years prior in 1668 by Colonel Robert Walpole. Thankfully, no fine was charged.

Do you have a stack of books to return to the library still sitting by your front door?  Return them for others to enjoy during Return Borrowed Books Week, March 3-9! Your librarians will thank you!
