Email News Alerts

"The Three Faces of Eve" by Corbett Thigpen was first published in 1957. A copy of Thigpen's classic book was checked out from the Moorhead Library with a date due stamp of Sept. 12, 1983.


Moorhead Library did not see the book again until it was returned on July 17, 2006. That's just 22 years, 10 months and five days overdue.

The late fee at the time it was due would have been $1. In 2006, when it was returned, the fine had increased to $2.
