Conway County Library plans Food for Fines

A tradition at many libraries across the country, the Conway County Library will be offering its Food for Fines Program through Wednesday, Oct. 29.

The Food for Fines program gives patrons an opportunity to help others in Conway County while taking care of fines for overdue library materials. Patrons may donate non-perishable food items when returning overdue materials to erase the fine for that item as well as any other existing overdue fines. Each non-perishable food item brought represents $1. Patrons may donate up to 10 food items to cancel up to $10 of fines.

Food donations may not be used to waive charges for items that are lost or lost items that were previously billed to patrons.

Patrons are encouraged to bring additional food items to help with the drive.
