The Blue Ridge Regional Library is hosting its third annual Food for Fines Food Drive October 29-December 10. Library patrons may pay off part or all of their unpaid library fines by bringing in boxed or canned food items to be donated to the Martinsville & Henry County Salvation Army and the Patrick County Community Food Bank to help fight hunger in the area.
Donated items are welcomed from all, even if there are no fines to be paid off.
One dollar will be deducted from overdue fees for each food item brought in. The maximum fine limit is $5 and food credits can only be applied to overdue fees. For more information, contact your local branch of the library. Contact information can be found at brrl.lib.va.us.
