Ill. library receives vinyl record 47 years late

EAST PEORIA, Ill. - EAST PEORIA, Ill. (AP) — You can't blame the person who recently returned an old vinyl record to an Illinois library for slipping quickly out the door. The record was a little late.

OK, 47-seven years late.

Fondulac District Library Director Amy Falasz-Peterson says the album by 1950s pop singer Julius La Rosa was checked out on Feb. 12, 1962 and was returned this month.

She says a person told library officials that they found the record among the belongings of a family member who had died. That person then left the library in East Peoria.

It's been so long since the record was checked out that the library doesn't know who the scofflaw was, but the fine would be $871.90.
