Bound for Glory

July 8, 1938, Appleton Post-Crescent
This seems a rather elaborate way of ensuring the library's books get back "home."  One would think a simple stamp with the library's name on the cover or some other such imprint would have sufficed.  I know some libraries today stamp their books on the end papers or even the edges of the collected pages.  Perhaps others saw it the same way and that is why this was termed an "experiment."  Still, the next time I'm in the library, I'd be curious to see such an example, if indeed, one still resides in its collections.  Dear readers, have you memories of seeing such books?
