Library forgives fines with food donation


Summit County Libraries is offering an amnesty on fines for over-due library materials April 15-28. The reprieve does not apply to lost library materials. Library director Joyce Dierauer started the “Food for Fines” program several years ago as a way for people to swipe away their library fines, but feel good about contributing in another way.To have your fines forgiven, bring your food items to any of the three area Summit County Libraries. Food donations will go to help restock the Summit County Social Services Food Bank. Foods being accepted include the following: canned stew, canned hearty soups, spaghetti, spaghetti sauce, peanut butter, canned tuna fish, canned fruit, boxed macaroni and cheese, refried beans, instant potatoes, boxed potatoes (i.e. Au Gratin), canned potatoes, canned peas, canned corn, canned beans (black beans, pinto beans, baked beans, white beans, refried beans), canned juices, boxed minute rice or other boxed rice.
