'Food for Fines' to benefit area food pantries

NT Staff

Several area libraries (La Salle, Peru, Richard A. Mautino, Graves-Hume, Oglesby and Putnam County libraries) are sponsoring an area-wide “Food for Fines” amnesty program benefiting area food pantries. From Nov. 11-23, these libraries will accept canned or boxed non-perishable food donations for payment of overdue fines.
Each donated food item pays $1 in library overdue fines up to a maximum of 25 items. All food is given to area food pantries (Illinois Valley, Putnam County, Mendota Area Christian and Hall Township).
Donated food is not accepted for lost or damaged books, replacement of cards or interlibrary loan fees. Because of food safety concerns, items must be in their original packaging — damaged packages, outdated food or glass containers are not acceptable. Suggested food items include canned vegetables, fruits, soups, boxed stuffing mix, cereals, pasta mixes and canned meats.
