POSTED: 8:14 a.m. EDT May 6, 2003 VERNON, Conn. -- The book was overdue all right -- by more than 90 years. Kelly Woodward recently returned a book to the Vernon, Conn., Public Library that was due back on May 3, 1909. Woodward says she found the copy of "100 Choice Selections Number Four" in her parents' attic. It's a collection of plays, prose, and poetry. At the 1909 rate of 2 cents a day, the fine would have amounted to nearly $700. But library officials have decided to waive the late fee. The librarians won't be putting the book on the shelves, though. Library officials have decided to place the long-overdue book in a display case.
