If you're bad about returning your library books on time, you're in luck this month.
For the third year, the Dearborn Public Library is offering a Food for Fines program, during which time library patrons may donate non-perishable, non-expired food items and receive $1 reduction in overdue library fines for every item donated.
The program runs Aug. 6-17. All items donated will be given to the Dearborn Firefighters Burn Drive for distribution to local families in need.
The program runs Aug. 6-17.
All Dearborn libraries–including the , and branches–will be accepting canned or boxed food items in exchange for reductions in overdue library fines.
While there is no limit on the number of items donated nor to the amount of fines cleared, it can only be used for overdue items. Patrons cannot use the donation program to pay for lost items or any damaged items.
Check at any Dearborn Public Library for further information.
