Food for Fines & Pet Food for Fines

November 10

Food for Fines & Pet Food for Fines
Washington County Public Library
November 1st –30th

The Washington County Library is again accepting donations of food for area food banks during the month of November in lieu of collecting fines for overdue materials. The Jonesborough Library will be donating their collections to the Jonesborough Area Ministerial Association’s Food Pantry (JAMA). The Gray Library is collecting for the Gray Community Chest Food Pantry.

The foods needed are assorted canned food items (fruit, vegetables, meat, etc.), dried beans, cereal, peanut butter, rice and pasta, cereals, boxed dinners. Also included are baby formula and baby food. Remember, we cannot accept glass containers, perishable food, or out-of-date items.

Both libraries are also doing a Pet Food for Fines drive. Donations will go to Good Samaritan Ministries Pet Food Pantry. We can accept canned cat/dog food, cat litter, bagged food (small bags preferred), treats, and potty- pads. No open packages, please!

For each qualified item donated, $1.00 in fines will be forgiven. Payment for lost or damaged library materials and processing fees are not included in the program. Even if you do not have fines, please donate! There are many in our communities that depend on these services.

If you have any questions, please call the Jonesborough Library at 753-1800, or the Gray Library at 477-1550.
