FOOD FOR FINES
The Stevens County Library is pleased to announce Food for Fines from November 1 through 22, 2017.
During this period, Library patrons are encouraged to bring undamaged and unexpired boxed or canned non-perishable food items to the library. Each single food item will be applied as a $1 credit toward the reduction of existing overdue fines. All food will be donated to Project Hope. Food for Fines demonstrates the Library’s commitment to community by reaching out and providing service through the community. Most-needed items include canned meat, peanut butter, canned fruit, canned vegetables, and boxed meals. Non-nutritional beverages such as soda, as well as any beverages in glass or plastic containers will not be accepted. Dented cans will not be accepted. The Food for Fines program is only applicable to Library overdue fines. No other fees are eligible.
The library will happily take cash for overdue fines. Normally, all fines and fees received are used to purchase materials. However, all cash for fines taken during this period will be contributed to Project Hope for perishable items.
