For Immediate Release
Library's collects food donations instead of overdue fees
Fredericksburg, Virginia, October 9, 2019 - During the week of October 13-19, Central Rappahannock Regional Library (CRRL) is celebrating  Food for Fines. For every non-perishable food item that customers bring to any CRRL branch (nothing expired, nothing dented), the library will deduct a dollar from the customer's overdue fees, up to a maximum amount of $20.00. One item = $1.00 applied to one customer account.

Donations may not be used to pay for lost or damaged library materials. All donations benefit local area food banks. Contributions are welcome even if customers do not have overdue fees.

In 2018, the library collected 4,124 lbs of food through Food for Fines.
Also, in recognition of Veterans Day, Monday, November 11 will be a fine-free day. There will be no late charges for overdue materials returned on that day.
