fines4foodBeginning today (Monday Nov. 18) and continuing until the Waterford Rescue Squad picks up the box, the library will be accepting non-perishable food items in exchange for overdue library fines. For each item donated, we will waive a $1 in fines, up to a maximum of $10.  This is only for overdue fines, lost item and other fees are not eligible for this program. So if you have been meaning to clear up some overdue library fines, here is a great way to do it and support your community at the same time! But don’t delay, when the box goes, the program is over!
