URBANA, Ohio (AP) - The saying goes that it's better late than never.

Thus, a person claiming to be a slow reader has returned a book that was 41 years overdue to a western Ohio public library.

The Dayton Daily News reports that the Champaign County Library on Wednesday received the book along with a full cash payment of the fines totaling $299.30.

The book titled "The Real Book About Snakes" was returned anonymously. It was originally due July 17, 1972.

The newspaper reports the library also received a handwritten note in which the reader apologized for the delayed return. The reader calculated the overdue fees at 2 cents per day.
