PREBLE COUNTY — Through the month of December, the Preble County District Library will offer “Food for Fines,” a program that helps local food banks stock their shelves for the holiday season.
Patrons owing fines can bring in non-perishable food items, personal care items, or cleaning supplies (no personal or single serve size) to any PCDL branch, and their fines will be waived based on the number of items donated. Each donated item will waive $1 in fines. Items less than three months from the expiration date will not be accepted.
Food for Fines is a great way for library patrons to help those in need during the holidays and get something back in return, according to library officials.
Patrons should note, donation dollar amounts will not be applied toward lost/damaged items or collection fees.
