Crossing The Finnish Line
Lucky they didn’t enforce a fine. A Finnish library-goer has returned a book that had been on loan for more than 100 years to a library in Vantaa, in southern Finland. The library had long since lost track of the loan but welcomed the bound copy of a 1902 volume of "Vartija", a religious monthly publication. It was borrowed so long ago that the branch of the library where it was handed in did not even exist when the volume was borrowed.
