Beatles cassette returned to Texas library was 44 years overdue

A library in Texas said employees recently found something unexpected in the drop box -- a Beatles cassette tape that had been checked out 44 years earlier.


The San Antonio Public Library said the tape, a recording of an interview with Beatles members John Lennon and Paul McCartney, was left anonymously in a book return drop box recently.


Librarians determined the cassette had been checked out from the Westfall Branch Library more than four decades earlier.


"Luckily, we have been fine-free since October 2021, so even if you have an item to return that's a year late, a decade late, and even four decades late, we will still accept it at NO charge," the library said in a Facebook post.
