Food for Fines Dates Set!

Food for fines video stillLast 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 celebrate the  season of thankfulness with our annual Food for Fines. 

Bring in a non-perishable boxed or canned food item to have your library late fees waived.

 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!
