The Library continues its long tradition of waiving library fines in exchange for donations for our local food pantries during the month of December. “Patrons with overdue fines can donate nonperishable items or paper products and the Library will waive those fines, no questions asked,” said Public Services Librarian Jodi Haven. Last March, the Library instituted a “no daily overdue fine” policy, which offers patrons flexibility in returning PDL materials with an extended grace period. Haven encourages patrons even without fines to consider donating items. For more information, please call 231-758-3100.
