Food Fines For 2014
Monday, November 24, 2014

The MidPointe Library System will be offering patrons a chance to do good in their community, while simultaneously eliminating Library overdue fees as they again sponsor their popular "Food For Fines" program. From November 28th through December 31st, for each non-perishable item a patron donates, one dollar of outstanding fines will be forgiven.

"MidPointe's Food For Fines program is a wonderful way for our users to eliminate their fines, while contributing to a worthy cause," says Library Director Anita Carroll. "We always see an enthusiastic response from the community and are thrilled we can offer the program again this year."

The MidPointe Library System will be distributing the contributions throughout their service area to multiple food pantries and charitable organizations including Reach Out Lakota, the EMA Food Pantry in Trenton and the Salvation Army of Middletown.

Canned goods, boxed mixes, toiletries and paper goods are all welcome contributions. Donated items can be used for up to ten dollars worth of fines per patron. Fees for lost or damaged materials cannot be forgiven through this program.

MidPointe first launched the Food For Fines program in 2011 and in three years the campaign has resulted in nearly $16,000 in forgiven fines and more than 18,000 items donated to local charitable organizations.

The Food For Fines program is not the only way the Library will be giving back to the community this holiday season. The MidPointe Library West Chester Youth Services Department will be sponsoring a "giving tree" from December 3rd through January 3rd to benefit the Animal Friends Humane Society of Butler County. Patrons can find more information at the Youth Services Desk of the MidPointe Library West Chester or by calling (513)777-3131 x.2.
