Beginning Monday, December 12th through Saturday, December 31st. Abbeville Memorial Library will offer its “Food for Fines” program. Overdue material can be returned to the Library along with non-perishable food donations and the Library will clear any fines associated with the account. Food donations cannot be used to pay fines for damaged or unreturned/lost items. Collected food donations will be donated to Local Food Banks to be distributed to local families in need.
1 can of food= up to $3 in fines. 2 cans= up to $6. You may donate as many cans as you need to pay for your late fines.
You do not have to have late fines to participate! All canned food donations are welcome. No glass containers, no open packages, no repackaged or expired foods.
