Son Pays 85 Years’ Worth of Library Fines for Overdue Books His Parents Checked Out from Rockville Branch

“By Jon Kramer’s reckoning, the books that his parents checked out from Montgomery County Public Libraries in the 1970s were a combined 85 years overdue. That worked out to $1,552.30 in late fees, he calculated in November after stumbling upon 365 Meatless Main Dishes and The New Way of the Wilderness at his family’s southern Ontario homestead. He admits he considered slipping the books back onto the shelf where they’d sat for years, racking up fines at a rate of 5 cents per day.” (via Bethesda Beat)
