Yes, Another Long Overdue Book


Just because we'll probably have a near-complete of overdue book stories here....
The facts:

  • Years overdue:47
  • Date taken from library: April 19, 1955
  • Title: "Days and Deeds," a compilation of poetry by Burton and Elizabeth B. Stevenson.

The article mentions that..."The largest library book fines paid, according to the current Guinness files, is $292.20, paid to the Prairie Creek Library, in Dwight, Ill., in 1999 by Art Org who discovered a book which was 40 years overdue." [from the kewanee star courier]
