That’s One Way to Set a World Record
Emily Canellos-Simms found an overdue library book, in her mother’s house. The children’s poetry book, called “Days and Deeds”, was due back April 15th, 1955! She paid the fine of 2 cents per day, to the Kewanee Public Library in Illinois. It added up to $345.14! She set a world record for largest library fine ever paid.
