Annual “Food for Fines” event begins at several Illinois Valley libraries

Posted by wlpo on November 7, 2016

Whether you owe a fine to a library in La Salle, Bureau or Putnam County, you can pay your debt with a can of corn or box of instant potatoes.

Once again area libraries are accepting food donations to pay off library fines. The 7th Annual “Food for Fines” runs this year from Monday through the 19th of November. Each canned or boxed food item you donate counts as a dollar towards your debt. You can get up to $25 of fines wiped out.

Libraries taking part include: Graves-Hume in Mendota; Jacobs Library at Illinois Valley Community College; La Salle Public Library; Peru Public Library; Oglesby Public Library; Princeton Public Library; Putnam County Library District and Richard Mautino Library in Spring Valley.
