Library book returned after 55 years

NEW YORK, Feb. 6 (UPI) -- A New York Public Library branch said a book was returned this week after being checked out in 1958.

Jennifer Zarr, manager at the Fort Washington branch, said "Fire of Francis Xavier" was borrowed from the library April 10, 1958, and arrived at the facility Monday wrapped in a plain brown envelope, the New York Daily News reported Wednesday.

Zarr said the book contained a check for $100, but no note or other explanation for its tardiness.

She said the check will more than cover any late fees for the book.

Zarr said library records don't go back far enough to see who checked the book out in 1958 and officials said they will not be releasing the name on the check.
