Library book returned 185 years after the due date

(CNN) - Someone's going to have a huge overdue fine.

A book has been returned to the Centre College library in Danville, KY, 185 yearsafter it was checked out.

The book is the second in the volume of a collection called Ancient Civilizations.

It was discovered at the nearby Kentucky School for the Deaf.

The book's inscription says it was first put in the library in 1828.

The school believes it was checked out in the 1850's, because someone wrotethe date July 21, 1854 in the book.

The staff tallied up the late fee, and at 10 cents a day, someone owes thelibrary $6,000.
