Overdue Book Returned 50 Years Later

If you're bad at returning books, you should start taking out books at Phillipsburg Free Public Library in New Jersey. They cap their late fees at $3, which is especially nice for whoever returned Jules Verne's "Dropped From the Clouds" 50-years after it was due. 

The book was left in the book drop, so it's unclear who actually returned it. "It looks like someone loved it for a long time," library director Deb Messling says. "Hopefully it did some good out in the world."

The Phillipsburg library charges 10-cents a day for overdue books, which means if the library didn't have a cap, the borrower would have to cough up more than $18-hundred.
