Book returned to library after 29-year loan

‘Honest Abe’ most likely would not have been impressed by the failure of one Clare County Library service members to return a loaned book on the former US President after almost three decades.

A copy of ‘Makers of History; Abraham Lincoln’ by Herbert Agar was loaned out by the Clare County Council library service in 1987 but has only just been returned.

A volunteer from a local charity shop returned the book to Shannon Library after identifying it as library property when going through a pile of donated items.

‘Makers of History; Abraham Lincoln’ was first published by Collins, St James’s Place, London, in 1965.
