the returner anonymously left them on a table and no further questions to be asked (apparently)

Hopefully it was just somebody who forgot they had them (who hasnt done that with library books), read the story and thought "oh crap". Glad to see em back though.

I dont think it was stolen. The library is the largest in the midwest and 5th largest in the world...I dont think there is adequate ways of ensuring every book/periodical/artifact/item in such a library is accounted for at any given point in time.

Someone took it for reference and maybe left it elsewhere? Maybe the cubune (which first reported it) just want to portray the Sox fans in bad light? Maybe one of the (diehard scrub nutcase) librarians took it home and waited until the story became this big??
