WORTHINGTON - The Nobles County Library and the Adrian Branch Library will offer Nobles County library patrons the opportunity to pay off their DVD fines while doing a good deed.

 

Beginning Tuesday and continuing through March 2, library patrons will be able to donate non-perishable food items to pay down DVD fines. Each non-perishable food item will reduce a patron’s fine by $2, to a maximum of $40 forgiven. Donated food will be given to Manna Food Pantry and the Worthington Christian Church for distribution.

 

All food items must be commercially packaged, undamaged and marked with a freshness date. It is preferred that all donations have a minimum of six months prior to expiration. Canned fruit, unsweetened cereal, canned corn and various spices are particularly wanted at this time.

Food for Fines is only good on overdue DVD fines accrued within Nobles County. Fees for damaged or lost items or other charges associated with one’s library account are not eligible. Donations should be brought to the circulation desk during normal business hours.

If someone is not a library patron or does not have library fines, then they can become a Fine Angel. Anyone donating a food item can request that the donation be applied to another patron’s overdue fines. Additionally, the librarians will welcome food donations not associated with library fines.

 

For more information, call the Nobles County Library at 295-5340. If you are a patron of the Adrian Branch Library, call (507) 483-2541.
