Attleboro, Massachusetts - If you want to talk about library late fees, you'll have to include the one that could have been charged to the individual who took out The Young Lady at Home by T.S. Arthur, says the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. 

It was returned to the Attleboro Public Library in Massachusetts nearly four decades after it was borrowed in 1938 and, if the library wanted to levy a fine, it would amount to some $2,800.  Librarian Amy Rhilinger told a reporter for WPRI-TV: "A gentleman was cleaning out a friend's basement and saw that the book had our markings and a due-date card, and he thought we would want it back."
