November is Food for Fines Month

Do you owe money to your library for late fees or for replacement of a lost item? Good news! This month, each food item you donate is worth a dollar! So if you donate three cans of soup and two boxes of pasta, you will trim $5:00 off your library fine. Pretty good, right?

Of course you are welcome to donate food items even if you don’t have fines. Come on in to your town’s libraries with the donation of food, and receive our thanks and $1.00 off your library fine for each item.

Non-perishable items only, please.
