Overdue book back after 25 years
We're way overdue for an overdue book story! The BBC Saves The Day! An overdue book borrowed from a Cumbrian library more than a quarter of a century ago has been returned.
The book, Mining in the Lake Counties by WT Shaw, was posted back to Penrith Library anonymously during an amnesty.
It was last borrowed in April 1983 and was one of 400 overdue items returned to libraries throughout the county during the 10-day suspension of fines.
