JFK’s Overdue Library Book


Amongst John F. Kennedy’s pre-presidential papers was found Library of Congress book, A. Lincoln by Ross F. Lockridge. Staff assumed it was one of his own but apparently it’s  not as it was listed as missing in the Library of Congress online catalog.

The book was checked out in the 1950′s when JFK was a senator, either by the man himself or a member of his staff, and was never returned.

As part of a week-long celebration of Presidents’ Day, the book will be on display at the The John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum along with other presidential items.  After that, the book will be returned to the Library of Congress.

I don’t think I could afford those fines!
