Central Citizens’ Library District wants to help you take care of your overdue fines – while giving you an opportunity to help your neighbors.
CCLD Library is sponsoring Food for Fines November 1 through November 30, 2010. The library will forgive $0.50 of overdue fines for each non-perishable, non-expired food item. Previously opened or glass items will not be accepted. Amnesty does not apply to library materials that have been lost or damaged. Donations must take place in person during regular library hours: Monday through Thursday 8 AM to 8 PM, Friday 8 AM to 4 PM, and Saturday 9 AM to 1 PM. No items will be accepted through the book drop. The food items will be donated to a local food pantry. Food for Fines is part of a nationwide effort to raise awareness of the problems of hunger and homelessness in the local
community and nationwide. It’s a great way to help the community, the
library, and yourself. Don’t owe any fines? Please consider making a food
donation anyway!
