The library will waive patron overdue fines with a donation of non-perishable food items. To participate in the amnesty program, library patrons must bring their donated, non-perishable food items to the circulation desk at the main library. A library staff member will collect and record the donation. Donations of non-perishable food items will be donated to area food banks for community distribution. If a patron has a large fine to be waived, we suggest donating several food items. Charges for lost items, as well as postage and processing fees, are not included in this offer. The goal of this program is two-fold: returning all lost, misplaced or recently found materials belonging to the library, and helping those less fortunate during the holidays.

Patrons are invited to help decorate our tree with mittens, hats, scarves, and gloves for children and adults. This is not just any tree; this tree is a special tree. It is fondly called The Giving Tree.
Brilliantly wrapped boxes will be beneath the tree. Families are urged to share their bounty with those less fortunate by donating canned goods and other non-perishables. Items will be delivered the first week of 2014. Since needs are so great during the winter months, this is a helpful way to assist agencies as they begin the new year. Remember, 'tis the season to be giving!
