Howland Library’s Food for Fines Begins Nov. 15

Bring goods for neighbors in need

The Howland Public Library at 313 Main St. in Beacon will be accepting food in lieu of fines from Nov. 15 until Dec. 30. Donations of nonperishables, such as peanut butter, canned tuna and bags of rice, will be accepted in payment of fines owed on Howland Public Library books, CDs, DVDs and other items. Nonperishables will be donated to your neighbors in need through iambeacon.

Food for Fines does not apply to fees for items that are lost or damaged, long overdue or from other libraries.

Those who are fine-free are asked to consider donating, as well.
