Library Book Returned -- 84 Years Later

kiplingIt’s never too late to return your books to the library.

This week a copy of KIM by Rudyard Kipling was returned to the reference desk at Scarsdale Library.

The book was checked out 84 years ago --- in 1939 and uncovered during a renovation project.

It was taken out when records were kept by hand and due dates were marked on a slip inside the book.

If the fee was .02 cents a day for 84 years, $613.20 would be owed in late payments.

Thankfully, Scarsdale has a fine-free library!
