The Desmond-Fish Library in Garrison and Howland Public Library in Beacon will be collecting non-perishable food such as peanut butter and rice, as well as personal care products such as toothpaste and soap, in exchange for erasing or reducing fines.
There is no limit on donations, although the Food for Fines program doesn’t apply to items that were lost or damaged or fines owed to other libraries. The program continues in Garrison through Nov. 22 and in Beacon through Dec. 30.
