Last weekend the Columbia Pike Branch Library welcomed home a well-traveled Spanish language Poetry Anthology.
The book, Libro de Oro de la Poesi en Lengua Castellana (Golden Book of Poetry in Spanish) was returned to the Columbia Pike circulation desk on Sunday, Oct. 17, 2010 – fifteen years and eight months after it was originally due (the due date stamp is faint, but it reads FEB 16 1995).
The book was recently found in Honduras, and mailed to the U.S. by the brother of the patron who returned it to us. Thank you!

How much was the fine?!
The Librarians says
Katie Elizabeth – Our maximum overdue fine on any returned item is $10. However, the patron who returned the book also brought us a $25 check – far more than our maximum overdue fine (and probably more than the original price of the book).
