During December kids can use food to pay library fines

During the month of December, 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.

The following high-need food items are worth $2 in fines waived: Hamburger or Chicken Helper (in a box), re-fried beans, taco or enchilada sauce, taco shells in a box, gluten-free products and new toothbrushes or deodorant. All food will be donated to the local LIFT-UP food bank. This program is for kids 17 and younger only, during December only, and it is not valid for replacement fees. For more information, visit
