From Nov. 7 – 19, the Princeton Public Library will be one of eight libraries participating in the 7th annual “Food for Fines” amnesty program benefiting area food pantries. They will accept canned or boxed non-perishable food donations for payment of overdue fines. Each donated food item pays off $1.00 in library overdue fines up to a maximum of 25 items.
Donated food is not accepted for lost or damaged books, replacement of cards or interlibrary loan fees. Because of food safety concerns, items must be in their original, undamaged packaging. Suggested food items include canned fruits and vegetables, soups, cereals, pasta mixes and canned meats.
