Library Book's Return 76 Years Overdue
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Many, many years ago, a boy named Mark McKee was entranced by a book. He checked out�the book "A Dog of Flanders"�from a Michigan library in 1934. He loved that book. And he says that while he intended to return it, he never did. He grew up to become a newspaper publisher and a big supporter of the library. Then he discovered�"A Dog of Flanders" 76 years overdue. The library has decided to waive the late fee.
It's MORNING EDITION.
