The Libraries’ 75-years Overdue Book on WMTV Channel 15

Last week, we shared the story behind very overdue library book, which made its way back to UW-Madison Libraries seventy-five years after it had been checked out.  Soon after the story was published, representatives from local NBC news affiliate WMTV 15 got in touch to film a short piece on the extraordinary story of two UW-Madison students in the 1930s and the book that they forgot to return.

The human story behind the return is a treat: Read the original story, “And You Thought Your Book Was Overdue!”

If you missed the spot on TV last night, you can access the clip on the WMTV website, or click the screenshot below to visit the archived video online:
