Man Returns Library Book After It Was 53 Years Overdue


A man from New Jersey returned an overdue Library book that was 53 years late.

The man was 13 when he checked out the book in 1966 and recently found the book after cleaning out his basement.

After feeling guilty for having the book for so long, he decided that he was going to return it.

It only took half a decade but"The Family Book Of Verse" by Lewis Gannet is back on the shelf at the Memorial Middle School Library in Fair Lawn, New Jersey.

The late fee for the overdue library book was estimated to cost around $2,000, but the school is not looking to collect on it.

Better late than never right?
