A children’s book was returned to a library in Missouri more than 30 years past its due date.
The St. Charles City-County Library said the book, But Not the Hippopotamus by Sandra Boynton, was returned recently to the WingHaven Branch.
The book had been due back in August 1993, the library said.
“It’s never too late to come back to the library, especially now that we are fine free,” the library said in a Facebook post. “We were happy to see it again, but even more happy to welcome the customer back to the library.”
