SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Spartanburg County Public Libraries said a book checked out more than two decades earlier has returned to the library.

The book, which was sent to the Central Library on South Church Street, was 21 years overdue.

Someone sent the book, Anna Stanley's 1989 The Crowning Touch: Preparing for Beauty Pageant Competition, in with a letter of apology.

"Better late than never, right?" a spokesperson for the library said in a Facebook post. "Thanks for returning!"

The book was returned with a note on the cover that read the following:

I apologize for this being so late but this book was found in an old box of items. Even though it is 21 years overdue, I wanted to make sure it was sent back!

The address in the book was showing online as a previous address. Hopefully this will arrive at the main library location.

Thank you!
