40 Years Over Due Returned to Toronto Library

The book Nicholas Knock And Other People: Poems by Toronto author Dennis Lee was recently returned to the Toronto Public Library–forty years overdue.

The Danforth/Coxwell Toronto Public Library recently shared via Facebook that the book had last been checked out in 1978.

The library also shared that the person who returned it can breathe a sigh of relief since the library won’t be charging them late fees.

Earlier this year, the library announced they are eliminating overdue fines on kid’s books in an effort to remove barriers to library access. Currently, the library isn’t charging fines on any materials during the pandemic. The library also shared that the book “will soon be put back into circulation.”

Many of us are familiar with Dennis Lee’s work. His Civil Elegies and Other Poems was awarded the 1972 Governor General’s Award, and his most famous book is the children’s book Alligator Pie (1974). He also wrote the lyrics to the theme song of the 1980s television show Fraggle Rock.
