Library waives $52,400 fee on book overdue for 58 years

They finally closed the book on this case.

A British library waived a $52,400 fee for a book that had been overdue — for 58 years. 

In 1964, then-17-year-old David Hickman checked out “The Law for Motorists” from the Dudley Library before a court visit over a minor traffic violation, the Express & Star reported.

When the former Dudley resident moved to London in 1970, he brought the book with him.
