Man Pays $2,190 Library Fine

With so many public library systems suffering financial hardship, here is a story of someone helping out in an unusual way.
A man [Joel Schlesinger] who borrowed a book in 1981 from his hometown library in suburban Buffalo has returned it, along with $2,190.
The maximum fine charged by the library in 1981 was $10. The Orchard Park Public Library considered the rest to be a very appreciated donation.
