Food For Fines
During the month of September any Jefferson County library patron may bring in donations for our food drive and have overdue charges waived for participating.
Our food drive benefiting local food banks is open to anyone, even if that someone doesn't have overdue books.
For those with late materials however, this is a golden opportunity to take a bite out of library overdue charges and help someone else at the same time.
One dollar will be waived up to a maximum of $10 per patron for each dated canned or packaged food item the patron donates. These waived fees applies only to fines for overdue materials, not lost materials.
