Library book returned after six decades


TOLEDO, Ohio (WKOW) -- After six decades, a book was returned to an Ohio library.

"Napoleon" a biography by Emil Ludwig arrived at Toledo's mail library with a letter reading: "I removed this book from your stacks in 1949 and did not check it out. I apologize. It's an excellent book and in good condition."

It was signed by "An ex-Toledoan," who said they were "carrying guilt for 60 years."

A spokesperson for the library said the package was postmarked in Beverly Hills, California.
