Sherri Wood, the librarian at Lincoln's library, recounts recently the frenzy that descended on the town 20 years ago when Ted Kaczynski, a local recluse who lived in a shack outside town, was arrested as the Unabomber, a serial terrorist sought by the FBI. Wood arguably knew Kaczynski as well as anyone from his frequent trips to the library, and she says that after his arrest, tourists would come into the building and touch walls and shelves, wondering aloud if Kaczynski had touched the same surfaces.
