Hello Visitor,


Food for Fines 2010

Cans of food & moneyThe Pioneer Library System’s annual Food for Fines promotion will take place Sunday, November 28 through Saturday, December 4.

During that time, cardholders may bring in donations of non-perishable canned or box food items in exchange for having a portion of fines removed from their library account.

For each item donated, customers will have $1 removed from their account, up to a maximum of $20. Waivers will apply to fines but cannot be applied to lost or damaged item fees or debt collection fees.

Donations may be brought to any of the system’s hometown libraries.

This is the sixth year for the promotion which enjoyed a record effort in 2009, with more than 2.5 tons of food donated to local charities.
