Li­brary of­fer­ing ‘Can Your Fines’

The News Herald (Willoughby, OH) - - Local News -

The Can Your Fines food drive is re­turn­ing to Men­tor Pub­lic Li­brary and, once again, li­brary pa­trons can do­nate food in ex­change for for­give­ness of their fines.

The food drive will run Dec. 1-31 and peo­ple can do­nate at any of the li­brary’s branches, ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease.

The do­nated food will go to lo­cal food pantries that will share it to fam­i­lies in need.

Each non­per­ish­able food item that some­body do­nates will be worth up to a dol­lar off of the fines they owe. Peo­ple can get up to $5 in fines waived this way, the re­lease stated.

Pa­trons can only trade food for fines once dur­ing the Can Your Fines food drive. Those whose fines have gone to col­lec­tions are not el­i­gi­ble to par­tic­i­pate.

For more in­for­ma­tion, con­tact the Men­tor Pub­lic Li­brary at 440-255-8811 or visit the li­brary’s web­site, www.men­torpl.org.
