Library accepts Food for Fines

EATON – From Dec. 1-31, the Preble County District Library will offer Food for Fines, a program that will not only help Preble County Food Banks keep their shelves well-stocked during the holidays, but will also help library patrons who owe fines.

Patrons owing fines can bring in non-perishable food items, personal care items, or cleaning supplies (no personal or single serve size, please), to any PCDL Branch and their fines will be waived based on the amount of donation made. Items donated will be worth$1 in fines waived. The more donated, the more fines will be removed. Items less than three months from the expiration date will not be accepted.

Food for Fines is a wonderful way for library patrons to help those in need during the holidays and get something back in return.

Donations will go to the following area food banks: First Southern Baptist Church Food Pantry in Camden (Camden Branch), Preble County Food Bank (Eaton Branch), Monroe Township Food Bank at Ware’s Chapel (Eldorado and West Manchester branches), West Alexandria Food Bank (West Alexandria Branch), St. Paul UMC (New Paris Branch), and the United Methodist Church (West Elkton Branch).

Please note that donation dollar amounts will not be applied toward lost/damaged items or collection fees.
