Book returned to New York library was 63 years overdue

A woman who checked a book out from a New York library in 1957 mailed the overdue volume back to the facility with a $500 donation.

Betty Diamond, 74, of Madison, Wis., said she checked out Ol' Paul, the Mighty Logger, a collection of Paul Bunyan stories by Glen Rounds, from a Queens Public Library branch in 1957.

Diamond said the book ended up lost among her own books, and she came across it over the years, but was unsure what to do with a book that was so long overdue.

Diamond, who teaches literature at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, said she recently decided to make amends and mailed the book back to the library branch in Auburndale with a $500 donation to cover any late fees.
