It’s straight out of a Seinfeld episode. A book enthusiast signed out The Loving Couple from a British library in 1952, and it surfaced sixty years later in a Croatian library.
A British library said a book checked out more than 60 years ago was finally returned to the facility after being found at another library in Croatia.
Vedran Levi, an employee of Dubrovnik Libraries, found a copy of The Loving Couple by Virginia Rowans in a bag of apparent donations left at the Croatian library.
He discovered the book had been checked out from the Gainsborough Community Library in Ipswich, England, in 1952. Levi mailed the book back to its original home with a note explaining the discovery.
Well, if my calculations are correct, twenty-five cents a day for sixty years comes to… $547,500. Better get your checkbook out, dude. You’re gonna need it.
