Food for Fines

During the entire month of December, overdue fines will be forgiven in exchange for a canned good, nonperishable food item, or hygiene product; one donation for each overdue item, please.  Everything collected will be given to the local Salvation Army Food Pantry.  Overdue materials must be returned at the circulation desk.  If you cannot find the lost item, you CANNOT pay for it with donated items.  For existing fines, $1 will be waived for each item donated.
