Food for Fines

From June 22nd to August 31st, our library is participating in the food for fine forgiveness program. Juvenile patrons (under 18) can have their overdue fines forgiven if they donate one canned or non-perishable food item. Lost or replacement fines will not be forgiven. All collected food will be donated to the Sandy Creek/Lacona Food Pantry.
