Library Book Checked Out in 1958 Finally Returned After 63 Years

Nearly 63 years after it was actually supposed to be back, a veryvery overdue book has finally been returned to the Fenham Library in Newcastle in Tyne, England. BBC News reports that the book, a first edition copy of Darrell Huff’s How to Lie with Statistics, was supposed to be back on November 25, 1958. Accompanying the severely behind return was a note that said “Better late than never!!” The library staff concluded that the late fee for the book would’ve been roughly £3,434 (around $4,747). The person who actually brought it back was not identified, however, as they chose to bring it back anonymously.
