(Scroll down for video) A doctor said that he found a book in his home that he took out from a library 40 years ago.

When Michael Kelly was a child, he dreamed of being a doctor.

He went to a library in Charleston, West Virginia, where he took out books on being a doctor.

Kelly, 58, has since made his dream come true, and he became a plastic surgeon. He currently lives in Florida.

Kelly said that he recently found a library book titled “So You Want To Be a Doctor” that he apparently neglected to return.

The book traveled with the doctor when he moved around for college and medical school.

Kelly said that he is very embarrassed about the incident, and he arranged to return the book along with a $500 donation to the library.
