“Can” Library Fines in September

Jefferson County’s Public Libraries are sponsoring a September food drive that will let you put outstanding library fines behind you and help a good cause.

One dollar in fines will be waived for each non-perishable food item donated in September, up to $10 per library card holder. That means you can wipe out the fines your kids may have incurred on their cards as well as your own (in defense of moms, those slick book covers do tend to make books slide around under the car seats).

Expiration dates must be visible on all food and the waived fees apply to fines only. Buy extra cans of vegetables, soups, etc. at good sale prices and you will come out ahead in your pocketbook while helping the community.
