Remember these?

Did you ever check out a library book by writing your name on a slip inside the front cover? This is how it was done before libraries had scanners to read barcodes.

Here’s one from an Andrew Jackson biography that was checked out by a young Elvis Presley just after he moved to Memphis, Tennessee. It recently sold for $7,500 in an online auction, so if you have any former library books it might be worth checking inside for any big names!
