PORTLAND, Ore.(KATU-TV)  — A Multnomah County Library
patron recently returned an overdue book – 65 years after its
check-out date!

In a social media post, the library said that someone recently
returned a first-edition copy of 1984 by George Orwell.

It was originally checked out in 1958, 65 years ago. The library
noted it even has the Library Association of Portland stamp
on the pages.

The MCL provided a picture of the book, as well as a note the
patron left with it.

The Multnomah County Library said that it is a fine-free library,
and the patron has definitely earned a clear conscience for their
good deed.
