West Hartford (US), June 7:

A book originally borrowed from a library in West Hartford in the US 52 years ago has finally found its way back to the library.

Staff members of the Noah Webster Library in West Hartford told The Associated Press that they did not know who returned the copy of W.O. Mitchell’s “Who Has Seen The Wind”.

The book was returned on Monday with a yellow sticky note reading, “Sorry it has taken so long.”

It originally was due back on September 29, 1965. Library director Martha Church said she doesn’t know how much the fine would be for keeping the book so long.

Currently, library fines 15 cents each day a book is delayed. The library, however, doesn’t plan to fine the person who returned this book.

The plot of W.O. Mitchell’s “Who Has Seen The Wind” centres on a coming-of-age tale of a young man in Saskatchewan, Canada. (IANS)
