If overdue fines are keeping you from using the Linebaugh Public Library, this is your lucky day! Starting October 15th through the 21st, pay your fines with donations of canned food.
Canned food donated at the Smyrna Library goes to the Nourish Food Bank, Eagleville's to the Eagleville Community Center Food Bank, while Linebaugh and Myrtle Glanton Lord (MGL) goes to the Salvation Army.
Library Director Rita Shacklet explains, "Bring your canned goods to front desk, and staff will waive your fines for overdue items. Charges for lost or damaged items or referral fees cannot be waived. Each can donated will waive one dollar in fines. Please bring only new, unopened cans within expiration date."
She concluded, "And if you don't owe fines, you can help out with a donation of canned food."
To find out if you owe any fines, simply go to the LPLS website (www.linebaugh.org) and login using your library card number and PIN (typically the last six digits of your library card).
