MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — File this one under the category: “Better late than never.”

The Morris Public Library received four overdue books in the mail this week.

That’s not usually a big deal, except these are nearly a hundred years late.

The accompanying letter said they were found when the sender was going through their late father’s belongings.

They were checked out when he was a young boy and recently found in a box in Texas.
