During the month of July, library cardholders with overdue fines on their records can eliminate them by donating canned fruits and vegetables, pasta, tomato sauce, and other non-perishable items at York County libraries.
The Food for Fines program will run from July 1 to 31 during regular operating hours at each of the 13 libraries in York County and at Martin Library at the Art Institute of York. For each food item donated, one dollar will be deducted from a participant's late fees (credit for lost items will not apply). All food donations should be non-perishable items in cans, boxes, bags, or pouches. Out-of-date, dented and rusted cans will not be accepted.
The local food pantries to benefit from the program are:
•Arthur Hufnagel Public Library of Glen Rock: Southern York County Food Pantry, New Freedom.
