    Library book returned 75 years past due date

    UPI – A New Jersey library said a former patron recently returned a book he had checked out 75 years earlier.

    The Jersey City Free Public Library said Bob Jablonski, 89, checked out Oden Rudolph’s book Hitler from the James J Ferris High School Branch in 1947.

    Jablonski said he recently rediscovered the book while reorganising his family home and wanted to make sure it found its way back to the library.

    Librarians said the book remains in perfect condition and still has its original reference card.

    Officials said Jablonski will not have to pay any fees for the 75-year overdue book, as the facility went fine-free in March 2021.
