UNIVERSITY HEIGHTS, Ohio (AP) — After nearly five decades of
blowin’ in the wind, a double
Bob Dylan album finally has a
direction home: A man living in San Francisco has mailed the
vinyl back to an Ohio library 48 years after it was supposed to
be returned.

Howard Simon recently sent the album along with a letter to
Heights Libraries apologizing for his tardiness, according to a
news release from the library system outside Cleveland.

Simon checked out Dylan’s "Self Portrait" album in 1973 as an
eighth-grader at a University Heights middle school. Simon,
now 73, says he found it between two other Dylan albums in
his personal vinyl collection.

"The funny thing about this is that we don’t charge overdue
fines anymore–as long as we get the item back, we see no
need to penalize people," branch manager Sara Phillips was
quoted as saying. "We’re grateful that Mr. Simon returned the
record. I’d said we can now call it even."
