Food for Fines

August 2nd, 2017 · Comments Off on Food for Fines

Extended through Friday November 17!

We are holding a “Food for Fines” week from November 6 – 10! Instead of digging into your pocket for fine money, you can dig into your cupboard. The food items will be donated to local food pantries just in time for the holiday season.

*Please only bring shelf-stable foods, such as canned fruits, vegetables and meats, soups, cereals, boxed meals, pasta, peanut butter and jelly. The library will not accept home-canned items, opened foods, or foods past their expiration dates. Each item will cover the fines on one overdue item. Unfortunately, we cannot accept food donations to cover the cost of lost or damaged materials.
