December is Food for Fines Month
From December 1st through December 31st, pay off your late fees with food during Food For Fines Month!
Patrons can bring in one nonperishable food item for each $1.00 in fines owed on their accounts to clear the late fees.
The library is encouraging patrons to return overdue materials along with food items to avoid incurring late charges.
Amnesty does not apply to lost or damaged library materials.
