Washington Overdue

Our nation’s first president never returned two books he checked out from the New York Society Library. George Washington checked out and never returned “Law of Nations” and a volume of debates from the British House of Commons.

The books were due Nov. 2, 1789. Head librarian Mark Bartlett won’t levy any fines, but he says the library would “love to get the books back.”
