Food For Library Fines

Mar 20, 2021 at 10:36 am by WGNS

Mon-Sat (April 5-10, 2021) It's NATIONAL LIBRARY WEEK and all branches of the Rutherford County Library System are accepting non-perishable food to clear your fines. 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. No fines? You can still help out and make a food donation anyway. Food goes to the Nourish Food Bank.
