76 years overdue: call it a record book

No one knows why Mildred Pugmire didn’t return the books she borrowed 76 years ago from the Salt Lake City Public Library:

  • Years overdue: 76
  • Possible Fines: $5,000
  • Claimed world record: returned to Harvard University’s library in 1997 — 233 years overdue.

The Salt Lake Tribune has this one.
