Mesa Chiosetts: The book was returned to a library in the US state of Massachusetts after 56 years.
According to the library, the recently returned book was accompanied by a letter apologizing for returning the book after a delay of 56 years.
Montague Public Library said in a Facebook post that the book, ‘The Mystery of the Green Ghost’, was returned to the Montague Center Library with a note attached. The note stated that the book was to be returned in 1967.
The former resident of the Montague Center wrote in the note that he hopes the library patrons will accept the book with sincere apologies.
The post said the library system eliminated late deposit fees last year, and those who returned the book would not be charged a 56-year fine.
