When it comes to overdue books there are apparently no excuses - not even death - at the Harrison Public Library.

That's the lesson a town woman learned when she was charged a 50-cent late fee while turning in a book that had been checked out by her mother, who died before she could return it herself.

"I was in shock,'' Elizabeth Schaper said of the incident at the Bruce Avenue library branch. "This has rocked me to my core."
