Food for Fines December 15-20

Help us stock the local food pantry in a time of great need, and “pay” off your library fines in the process! 

During the week of December 15-20, each nonperishable food item you donate will allow $1 of your library card fees to be waived.  Currently, the food pantry is in great need of peanut butter and beans, which are high-protein food items.  Just one of these special items - one jar of peanut butter, or one bag of beans - will clear $5 in library fines!

For example, if you owe $10 in library fines, the following would clear your fines:
  • 10 regular nonperishable food items or
  • 1 bag of beans or 1 jar of peanut butter and 5 regular nonperishable items or
  • 2 bags of beans or jars of peanut butter
All donations will benefit the food pantry at the Pike County Outreach Council.  Fines cannot be cleared for lost or damaged library materials.  The library reserves the right to reject donated items that are damaged, dented, expired, etc.
