George Washington Owes $300K In Overdue Library Books

Oh dear Mr. President George Washington. You forgot to return the books you checked out to the New York Society Library in 1789. Washington borrowed “Law Of Nations” & a book on Britain’s Parliament and signed “president” in the ledger. After adjusting for inflation, Washington owes about $300,000 for being 220 years overdue. The New York Society Library says they will not pursue retrieving the fines but are requesting the books be returned. To date, they are still missing.
