It happens to all of us. That one library book or DVD that gets lost under the bed or buried under a stack of papers and forgotten. Before you know it the fines are piling up and you can’t use your library account!! Well folks, you’re in luck!!
Beginning TUESDAY MAY 28TH the library will begin celebrating Dig into Reading, the 2013 summer reading program. In conjunction with our summer reading program we will also begin celebrating Food for Fines.
For each toiletry item or non-perishable food item that is donated you can reduce your library fines by $1.00. Up to $10 per account!! FEES FOR LOST OR DAMAGED MATERIALS WILL NOT BE WAIVED. THIS IS FOR FINES ONLY!!!!
Food for Fines will benefit the Eudora Food Pantry which is housed and administered by St. Paul Church in Eudora. Items must be NON-PERISHABLE, IN ORIGINAL PACKAGING, WITHIN 30 DAYS OF THE EXPIRATION DATE. THEY CANNOT BE OPEN OR DAMAGED, ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES OR MIXES, OR HOME-CANNED/HOMEMADE.
The most needed items include macaroni and cheese, canned fruits and vegetables, soups, cereals, tuna, peanut butter, jelly, toilet paper, paper towels, Kleenex, deodorant, and bath soaps.
Food for Fines will run Tuesday May 28th-Friday July 19th. For more information please call 785-542-2496 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
