Who says that libraries have lost their relevance? Or that printed tomes have gone the way of the dodo?
One book in particular recently made a 53-year journey before being returned to its rightful place on a library shelf in New Jersey.
The book in question, "The Family Book of Verse", by Lewis Gannet, was lent by a local middle school to a student all the way back in 1966. And Harry Krame, then 13 and living in Fairlawn, where he still resides, allegedly never returned it.
Dominick Tarquinio, vice principal of Memorial Middle School, told CBS News that he was shocked when Krame, now 65, waltzed in and announced he had something to return to the school's library, adding of the original transaction taking out the book, “We never saw it again."
