"Food for Fines" to benefit the Food Pantry

Do you have some overdue library books? If you're going to the grocery store soon, picking up a few extra items can help you pay for your library late fees.

The Public Library will have a "Food for Fines" exchange to benefit the Food Pantry. Until the end of April, library patrons may bring in one nonperishable food item in exchange for $1 in regular overdue fines on library materials.

The program provides library patrons with a way to reduce or eliminate overdue fines, and provides much-needed donations to the local food pantry. Donated goods apply only to fines (past ones, or ones for overdue items you turn in now), not lost or damaged materials or interlibrary loan fees.

Canned items such as soups, fruits, vegetables, beans, pasta dishes, canned milk and meats are welcome. Dried goods needed include rice, oatmeal, dried beans, dried pasta, crackers, cookies and dried milk may be donated. Please check expiration dates on any of your donations.

Even if you don’t have library fines, you can leave donations for the food pantry at the library until the end of April. If you have any question about "Food for Fines" call the library at 555-555-1234. If you need assistance from the food pantry, call 555-555-1234.
