Peter White Public Library is partnering with the TV6 Canathon to help feed our hungry neighbors by serving as a collection point for food items to help stock our local food pantries from November 14 through December 7, 2016.
As an added incentive to donate, the library will be offering Food For Fines, a program that allows library users to resolve overdue fines or get a free film rental with the donation of non-perishable food items to the Canathon. Bring in one non-perishable food item in exchange for $1.00 in overdue fines or a film rental.
There is no limit to the dollar amount of fines that can be waived through Food For Fines. The program applies to overdue fines and film rentals only. It cannot be used to resolve fees for lost or damaged materials.
In previous years, the Peter White Public Library collected over 1,600 pounds of food and items donated to the food banks thanks to the generous support of the Marquette area community. The library staff looks forward to the continued commitment of patrons to let no one go hungry in our community.
Questions about the Food for Fines program can be directed to the library’s Circulation Desk at 906/228-9510.
