Overdue library books returned 50 years later; borrower pays $1000 fine!!!

A high school librarian in Phoenix says a former student at the school returned two overdue books checked out 51 years ago along with a $1,000 money order to cover the fines.

Camelback High School librarian Georgette Bordine says the two Audubon Society books checked out in 1959 and the money order were sent by someone who wanted to remain anonymous.

"It was just so overwhelming," Bordine said of her reaction when she opened the box. More + video...
