Help the Pike County Outreach Council food pantry the week of February 19 - 23 by "paying" your library fines with nonperishable food items at any branch of the Garnet A. Wilson Public Library. During Food for Fines Week, simply bring in one nonperishable food item for up to $5 in library card fees, and your fees will will be waived.
For example, if a patron owes $12.95 in fines, a donation of three nonperishable items will clear their record. In addition, any fess accrued on items returned late during that week will be removed when you bring in food items for the pantry. At this time, the pantry is in special need of dry beans, s a bag of dry beans will allow $7 to be waived.
The library reserves the right to reject donated items that are damaged, dented, expired, etc.
