Va. library book returned after 35 years
A novel checked out in 1975 from the College of William and Mary library is back among the stacks.
The long-term lender is Pat Harkin, who found the book of Leon Uris' “QB VII” in a box fully intending to return it during several past homecomings.
On Friday, he made good on his intentions.
The library caps its fees at $35. Otherwise, the overdue fee could have hit $1,400 at today's dime-a-day late fee.
To atone for his late return, Harkin told the Daily Press of Newport News he made a cash donation to the library. It was more than the $35 overdue fee, but less than the $1,400 he might have owed.
