Overdue Library Book
A copy of ‘Makers of History; Abraham Lincoln’ which was returned to Clare County Library 29 years after it was first loaned out

‘Honest Abe’ most likely would not have been impressed by the failure of one Clare County Library service member to return a loaned book on the former US President after almost three decades.

A copy of ‘Makers of History; Abraham Lincoln’ by Herbert Agar was loaned out by the Clare County Council library service in 1987 but has only just been returned.

A volunteer from a local charity shop returned the book to Shannon Library after identifying it as library property when going through a pile of donated items.

The maximum fine imposed by Clare County Library for an overdue book is €7.50. This means that the despite the book being overdue so despite this particular member holding on for the book for twenty nine years too long they will only be fined €7:50 which is the same fee for someone who has a book overdue for one hundred and fifty days.
