The library will be accepting non-perishable food items in exchange for overdue fines assessed against library materials March 2nd-7th. Each non-perishable food item donated to the library will be given to the Jasper Community Food Pantry. One non-perishable food item will equal up to $1.00 in fines. Some acceptable non-perishable food items include: rice, dried cereal, beans, soups, canned meats, canned juices, peanut butter, and any canned fruits or vegetables. Expired foods will not be accepted. This program does not affect charges assessed for lost/damaged materials or recovery fees. You don’t have to have a fine to donate! Patrons who clear their fines will be allowed to update to the NEW library card for free (normally $1)!
