Pennsylvania Library Waives $554 Fine For Library Book Returned 75 Years Late (Video)
Posted by Steve on February 20 2017
When Robert Lockman, Jr. was cleaning out the basement of his Pennsylvania home recently, he discovered a library book that his father had taken out when he was just nine years old...in 1941!  His father has since passed away, but Lockman decided that he wanted to do the right thing and returned the book.  

Obviously, the library employees were shocked to see the book and decided to waive the $554 fee that they would have imposed on a 75-year lateness, especially after noticing that the book was due just days before the Pearl Harbor attack that started World War II.  

Lockman said that his father always taught him to do the right thing, and that memory is what motivated him to return the book.
