Library Book Returned 37 Years After Due Date


Good morning. I'm David Greene. Evidently the punishment is not that rough if you return a book late to the Midtown Carnegie Branch Library in Springfield, Mo. A book has been returned 37 years late. Late fines, though, cannot exceed $5. Whoever returned it left six bucks just to be safe and a note - sorry this is so late. Weird story because the library has no record of who checked out the book - mysterious as the book subject's matter. It's titled "Is There A Bermuda Triangle?: Science And Sea Mysteries."
