Patrons of the Grove, Jay, and Kansas Public Libraries can bring in canned goods and other non-perishable food items and get overdue fees and fines waived during “Food for Fines Week.”

The program began on Tuesday, November 12 and will run through Tuesday, November 19. Library patrons will get $1 in overdue fees or fines waived for each can or box of food donated during the week. $20 is the maximum amount that will be waived during the week. Unopened, unexpired, non-perishable, non-glass donations will be accepted.

Patrons should bring their food items to the check-out desk along with their library cards. Libraries in the Eastern Oklahoma Library System are happy to help our communities.
