George Washington Never Returned Library Books
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne. No matter how distinguished you might be in the eyes of your countrymen, you still gotta return those library books, even if you happen to be George Washington. New York City's oldest library says the founding father is still on the hook for a pair of books - due Nov. 2, 1789. While the library is giving the first president a break and not seeking late fees, librarians would like to see the books returned.
It's MORNING EDITION.
