Library collects food for fines

November 8, 2004

Sylvester- The Sylvester Public Library is running a Food for Fines campaign.

Patrons pay their tabs by bringing in non-perishable food items. Each item is worth a dollar of debt, and all of the food will go to needy Worth County families.

"We have a few patrons that are just regulars, and they get tickled that this is something that they can do to pay their money back, and it goes for a good cause," says Sharon Rhoads of the Sylvester Public Library.

Last year, the library collected six boxes of non-perishable food for the needy. The Food for Fines program will run until December 15th.
