It’s never too late to return an overdue book. This was just received by the Tates Creek Branch by mail from Georgia.

The book was delivered from Georgia to the Tates Creek Branch.

The Lexington Public Library currently has a 15-cent daily late fee, which is capped at $6.75. If late fees remained the same for 50 years without a cap, the person would owe the library more than $2,700.

The library said, “It’s never too late to return an overdue book.”
