CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - A Florida doctor is returning a long-overdue book that he checked out from a West Virginia library and donating $500.

WCHS-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2b72He2) that as a child in the mid-1970s, Dr. Michael Kelly checked out “So You Want To Be a Doctor” from the Kanawha County Library.

Kelly, a graduate of Charleston High School, is now a successful plastic surgeon in Miami and owns Miami Plastic Surgery.

Kelly told the news station that he recently found the book in a bookshelf at his home and is “extremely embarrassed” that it has been checked out for so long.

Library officials say Kelly will return the book at 1 p.m. Friday, along with a check to show gratitude for his success. Kelly says he hopes his story will inspire the children of Charleston to follow their dreams.
