Food for Fines
Last year your hometown libraries raised 3.3 tons of non-perishable foods for local food pantries. This year we need your help in beating that figure.
From November 13 - 21, your hometown libraries will accept non-perishable boxed or canned food items to waive late fees.
One canned/boxed food donated equals $1 in library fines. The maximum amount that can be waived is $20.
So mark your calendar and gather those non-perishable food items - help us help those in our hometowns who are in need!
