Home at last! A customer who checked out a copy (shown below) of 'The Postman' recently mailed back the book to the Silver Spring library.

The sender's parents had borrowed the book from the old Silver Spring library when she was a toddler...in 1946.

The book has since been returned to the modern Silver Spring library by mail in Jan. 2019. With the mailed book, the customer details a letter explaining that she was 2 or 3 years old at the time the book was borrowed for her.

The family, after borrowing the book, moved to Canada on short notice and the book was packed up along with everything else, according to Montgomery County Libraries' website.
