    Book returned to school library after 120 years

    UPI – A school in Queensland, Australia, said a book recently returned to its library was found to be nearly 120 years overdue.

    Toowoomba Grammar School said in an Instagram post that the book, a copy of Great Expectations by Charles Dickens, was recently returned to the school’s library by a man named John Lamb.

    Lamb’s grandfather, Arthur Lamb, had been a student at the facility during the 1902-03 school year, and had checked the book out of the library in 1903.

    “The book was discovered recently by family members in a box of various possessions and is in excellent condition,” the post said.

    “Lamb kindly returned it to the school for display – 120 years overdue!!! A huge thank you to the Lamb family.”
