The Mid-Continent Public Library will be erasing library fines for those who bring boxed or canned non-perishable food items to any location for its first-time, trial-run Food for Fines program Monday through Saturday, May 5 through 10. Each single food item will count as $1 off existing overdue fines or replacement card charges, up to $10.

“Our Food for Fines program is a great program for multiple reasons. It allows people to clean up their library accounts leading into the Summer Reading Program and in return, that may lead to more students participating,” said Library Director Steve Potter. “It also helps fill the community pantries at a time when they need it most. With the upcoming summer break, kids will need access to food, so by donating and helping to restock their shelves, we can provide a great service to our community.”
