A novel titled 'A Little Too Late' is one of 94 overdue library books returned in the first week of an amnesty being held by libraries across Clackmannanshire.
'Lost Luggage' by Colin Brake has also now been found and Allan Ahlberg's 'The Cat Who Got Carried Away' has been carried back.
After an absence of five years, the reader who borrowed 'Mastering Japanese' must now be fluent and 'Personal Computing De-mystified' has been handed in by someone who could well be an expert in the field.
The book amnesty, which runs to the end of January, provides the opportunity for anyone who has an overdue library book to return it free of charge, as they will not incur the usual late fees.
A box is available in each of Clackmannanshire's eight libraries/CAPs where customers can drop off overdue books.
