A book from the Rockford Public Library recently made its way back from across the Atlantic Ocean – more than 120 years later.
Bridget Finn is director of marketing and communications at Rockford Public Library. She says the sender is from England and inherited the book from her aunt.
Finn says the book that belonged to the library in 1893 is a bound collection of magazines from Great Britain in the 19th century. She says it was a reference book and most likely wasn’t even checked out from the Rockford Public Library to begin with.
