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)

The headmaster at Hereford Cathedral School, near the boundary between Wales and England, had been looking at his mail earlier this month when he noticed a package wrapped in brown paper addressed to him. Smith guessed immediately that the package contained a thick book — but it wasn’t until he read the note that came with it that he realized just how long that very book had been around.” (via NPR)

How a library book filched from Rolling Hills High turned up 50 years later

“A caper 50 years in the making came to a close this week in the Palos Verdes Peninsula High School library. The culprit was Carol Kronberg, a member of the first graduating class at Rolling Hills High School in 1966. The heist began during her senior year, when she nabbed a library book she needed for a term paper without checking it out. She finally returned the book during Sunday’s 50-year reunion for her high school class, as she and a group of former classmates took a tour of their former school — which is now Peninsula High — in Rolling Hills Estates.” (via Daily Breeze)
