Trade Food for Fines at Your Library!
When you want to keep a good thing going, you may keep your library items a little longer than expected, which could result in late fees. Reduce or eliminate those overdue fines by bringing in food to your library! Bring your non-perishable food items to your library during open hours starting 8/25 through 9/2 and get $1 off for each item, up to a total of $5 a day. No overdue fines? We still welcome you to drop off an item to contribute to community members in need. All food will go to NeighborImpact's Food Bank, which is in particular need of canned fruit (without added sugar), soups and stews, but all canned and non-perishable food items will be accepted. Our forever-in-training employee Bookasaurus recently dropped off some items; be sure to check it out here!
