Last month instead of taking money for fines, we took canned goods and non-perishable food item, to donate at the local food pantry.
We came up with this idea, because one of our board members were at another library website and noticed that they were doing this “Food for Fines”. The amount of food that we received was great for a town of our size and for having several closings.
If your library has done this in the past, how did it work out for you and your library?
