Trying to remember to return library books on time can be a challenge. We’ve all been there. You toss it in the back of your car, or you lay it on your kitchen counter, and you say: “I’ll take care of that tomorrow” … and tomorrow, and tomorrow. (Fortunately, for those who tend toward tardiness, Eckhart Public Library now accepts payment for fees by credit and debit card.)

In any case, take heart; you’re not nearly as bad as the unknown patron whose book was finally returned last week to a Kentucky library, 150 years overdue.

Other famous library-book hoarders: George Washington (221 years) and Robert Walpole (288 years).
