Library Book Finally Returned After 84 Years


A Louisiana library says a book borrowed 84 years ago has been returned by the son of the woman who checked it out as an 11-year-old girl.

A librarian’s note on the Shreve Memorial Library’s Facebook page says the son found the “Spoon River Anthology” while cleaning house.

A library official says it’s in “pretty rough shape,” so probably not worth much. The library said its maximum fine is $3, and that was waived.
