Clearwater Libraries Offer Fine Amnesty for Donated Food

 

CLEARWATER, Fla. – All Clearwater Public Library branches are offering an amnesty period for overdue materials in exchange for donation of non-perishable foods. The Food for Fines program will run through close of business Friday, Dec. 22.

 

The program has netted tons of food and supplies for the Religious Community Services Food Bank since the holiday program was introduced in 2012. Anyone who has fines due may bring canned goods or non-perishable food items to any Clearwater library branch and present them at the circulation desk with the overdue materials. Staff will waive any fines due, and the donated food will go toward the holiday charity food drive. This program does not apply to fees for lost or damaged materials.

 

For more information, please call (727) 442-5355 or visit myclearwaterlibrary.com.
