Pay off library fines with food donations
Kids can “pay-off” their library fines while helping local families in need by participating in the Bud Werner Memorial Library’s annual Food for Fines program. For every can or box of food kids bring to the Kids’ Desk, the library will waive $2 of their overdue fines. All food will be donated to the local Lift Up Food Bank. This program is for kids and students, 17 and under, whose accounts are listed under the child’s name. The program starts Dec. 1 through Dec. 31. Visit steamboatlibrary.org/services/kids/food-for-fines-december.
