It was overdue by about eight decades, but the Attleboro Public Library finally received the extremely late book this week.

The Attleboro Public Library posted a photo of the newly returned book today showing that it was initially due back on November 21, 1938.

The nearly 79 year overdue library book was fittingly their #TBT photo.

The book, “The Young Lady at Home,” by T.S. Arthur, was returned earlier this week.

No word on how it got back into the library's possession or if the borrowers had to pay the estimated $2873 in late fees.
