Overdue By More Than 120 Years, A Library Book Finally Finds Its Way Home
December 19, 2016, via NPR
Most of us have probably had an overdue library book, but likely not 122 years overdue. This NPR article covers how the headmaster at Hereford Cathedral School received a package containing a copy of Walter Benjamin Carpenter’s The Microscope and Its Revelations that was originally checked out of the school library in 1894. Fortunately the library does not charge late fees.
