Exchange Food For Fines at MidPointe Library System
Posted By:  Cari Hillman
Monday, November 4, 2019

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 29 through December 13, for each non-perishable item a patron donates, one dollar of outstanding fines will be forgiven. 

The MidPointe Library System will be distributing the contributions throughout their service area to multiple food pantries and charitable organizations including Reach Out Lakota in West Chester, the EMA Food Pantry in Trenton, Church of the Nazarene Food Pantry in Monroe, 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 eight years the campaign has resulted in over $43,000 in forgiven fines and more than 49,000 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. Toys for Tots donation bins will be available at all MidPointe locations until mid-December. Additionally, MidPointe will be holding “Stuff the Bookmobile” for Toys for Tots events throughout the community. Check www.MidPointeLibrary.org and MidPointe’s social media sites for updated dates and times.  

The MidPointe Library System serves a population of almost 200,000 people in the cities of Middletown, Trenton, and Monroe and the townships of West Chester, Liberty, Lemon, Madison, and Wayne with a collection of nearly half a million materials. The Library offers locations in downtown Middletown, Liberty Township, Monroe, Trenton and West Chester, as well as a bookmobile.  For more information, please visit www.midpointelibrary.orgor contact Cari Hillman at (513)705-8511.
