Looking for a way to give a little and clear up some lingering fines? We'll wipe $2 in fines (up to $20 per account) for each unexpired, non-perishable food item you donate during National Library Week. You can also return currently overdue or billed items without accruing any new fines. Visit the 1st Floor Circulation Desk starting Sunday, April 7 with your donations and overdue materials.
