2 books returned to Lansing library 40 years after due date

LANSING, MI (AP) -

Two books about NBA legend Kareem Abdul Jabbar have been returned to a library in Lansing nearly 40 years after they were due.

The Lansing State Journal reports that the books were found early this week in the book drop at the downtown Lansing branch of the Capital Area District Library system.

The books, "Kareem Abdul Jabbar: The Story of Lew Alcindor," and "Jabbar: Giant of the NBA," were supposed to be returned to the library Dec. 2, 1976.

Scott Duimstra, senior associate director for the library system, says there's no way to tell which unpunctual patron returned the books because the library doesn't keep records from 1976.

Duimstra said overdue books are common, but that he can't remember a book returned after such a long period.
