Fight Against Maturity

That will be $6852, please.

It’s a real-life horror story: Wellington Library’s most-overdue book has been revealed, and its borrower owes a theoretical $6852 in fines.

The Dunwich Horror and Others, by HP Lovecraft, was due back on February 12, 1988.

Although the library charges fines at 80c a day, it sets a cutoff at 28 days, meaning the borrower, if he or she is eventually tracked down, will be liable for a fine of only $22.40.
