Food For Fines

Posted by wlpo on November 22, 2010

If you have overdue book fines at La Salle, Peru or Oglesby Public Libraries, here is a way to get out of paying.  Donate food for the Illinois Valley Food Pantry. 

The libraries are sponsoring a joint “Food for Fines” amnesty program to benefit the food pantry.  From December 6th thru the 11th, each of the libraries will take canned or boxed food donations for overdue fines.  Each food item can be used to pay a dollar in fines up to a maximum of 25 dollars. 

Donations cannot be used for lost or damaged books.  Suggested foods include canned vegetables, fruits, cereal, and pasta mixes.
