After 55 years, an overdue book, Fire of Francis Xavier, was recently mailed back to the Fort Washington Branch of the New York Public Library. While the late fee would’ve only been the cost of the book, a check for $100 was enclosed. The library’s records don’t go back to 1958 so the borrower can’t be traced. The library won’t reveal the name on the check.
 
Two books checked out by George Washington in 1789 have yet to be returned. Adjusted fines are over $300,000.
