In November: Pay Overdue Fines by Donating Food

November 01, 2014

How It Works! image
Through November, library cardholders may clear overdue library fines by bringing non-perishable food items to the library to be donated to the Jackson Cupboard. *The amnesty program applies only to late fines and does not include fees for lost or damaged library materials or other library fees.

Who Benefits
Food donations may include sealed, store-purchased jars, cans or pastas. The Jackson Cupboard, located on the campus of St. John’s Episcopal Church, provides essential and nutritious food for community members in need. The Library has been partnering with St. John’s Episcopal Church and the Cupboard since 2013 to offer free, nutritious snacks daily to children at the library after school and during the summer.

For information, contact: Adult Services Manager Adam Van Sickle, 307-733-2164 ext. 257, .
