Content Description

On May 17, 2018, UNO's Criss Library received a note along with three books being returned to the UNO Libraries by an alumnus after 40 years. The note reads: "To Whom It May Concern – 40 years ago I walked out of the UNO Library with these books and never got around to returning them. / Please forgive my laziness and reluctance to not only properly check them out – but for keeping them so long. – A former Student." The books returned were: The Complete Jack the Ripper by Don Rumbelow, Witchcraft: The Old Religion by Leo Louis Martello, and Navaho Witchcraft by Clyde Kluckhohn.
