A librarian in Michigan was able to shelve a book checked out more than half a century ago.

According to the card inside the copy of “John Foster’s Life of Charles Dickens” shows it was last removed from the Flint Public Library in May 1968.
Carmen Walker was on duty when the woman brought it in, indicating that she found it among a relative’s belongings. While the 10-cent-per-day fine would mean the book has racked up nearly $2,000 in fees, the library granted a reprieve.
In any case, a maximum fine is $2.50 — and accounts are wiped clean after seven years.
The library referenced the issue in a tweet, explaining that it “didn’t have the heart” to collect any late fees.
“It doesn’t matter how late they are, we just want the book back,” the tweet concluded.
