April is Food for Fines Month at the Library!

All this month, bring in your overdue books along with some non-perishable food items, and your overdue fines will be waived. This does not apply to items that are in billing status or have not been returned. As an added bonus, if you have lost your library card we will gladly give you a new one without charging the usual replacement fee. All food collected is donated to a local food pantry for distribution to the needy. Collection containers will be in the library lobby. Help others while you help yourself!
