Library Book Returned 50 Years Late

A library book was returned fifty years late.

According to the Phillipsburg Free Public Library, in Phillipsburg, New Jersey, they found the book in their book drop, on Friday.

Jules Verne’s Dropped From The Clouds had been checked out quite some time ago.

It was due back at the library on January 5,1967.

At ten cents a day the fine would be over $1800, however the library limits fines to three dollars per item.

The library does not have records of who checked out books, back then, so they aren’t sure who had the book the whole time.

Either way, they are glad to have the book back, especially as they noted it was in great condition.
