Henderson Memorial Public Library hosting food drive

JEFFERSON — Henderson Memorial Public Library will be accepting donations of non-perishable food items through February.

For each non-perishable food item donated, the library will waive $1 in fines, up to a maximum of $20 per person. The food will be donated to the Manna Food Pantry.

Food items should be brought to the front desk. One food item equals $1 in fines.

Food will be accepted for overdue fines and for lost or damaged items.

If patrons have lost their library card, the library will also accept a food item to replace it.

Patrons should also remember the actual cost of food will not be considered in waiving fines. Only unopened, pre-packaged food will be accepted. No food in damaged packaging, including dented cans will be accepted. Only non-perishable food items will be accepted. Expired food will not be accepted either.
