This December–Fund School Lunches for Fines

The Library continues its long tradition of waiving library fines, but this year it’s in support of a new cause.  This December, patrons who contribute funds to Fund Lunches for Fines will have their overdue fines waived and the money collected will be given to the Public Schools of Petoskey food service program to pay for students’ lunches.  Elementary school lunches are priced at $2.75; high school and middle school lunches are $3.00.  “Patrons can contribute any amount, no questions asked, and we will waive all overdue fines on their card, or even the fines for another patron should someone want to just pay it forward,” said Public Services Librarian Jodi Haven.  In 2017, the Library instituted a “no daily overdue fine” policy, which offers patrons flexibility in returning Petoskey District Library materials with an extended grace period.  Haven encourages patrons even without fines to consider participating.
