Food for Fines back at SDG Library branches
Do you keep forgetting to bring that book back to the library?
Library fines can add up after a while, but the good news is now you can help bring down the fines with a donation of a non-perishable food item.
The SDG Library is offering the Food for Fines program for the second time this year at all of its branches. From Nov. 17-24, each SDG Library branch will be collecting food items for distribution to local food banks or other organizations. For every food item donated, the library will waive $2 in overdue fines.
“Food for Fines is a great initiative,” said director of library services Karen Franklin. “Its success stems from the generosity of our community and from the dedication of library staff and their commitment to this worthy initiative.”
For more information about this program or to find other ways to donate to library initiatives call the administration office at 613-9368777 or email Franklin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The last Food for Fines event in May raised 528 donations of food or cash.
It’s a great way to not only bring back your overdue books and settle your fines, but it helps local families in need especially with Christmas coming up fast. email@example.com twitter.com/LoisAnnBaker
