Food for Fines

Now’s the perfect time to get those items back to the library as the Amherst Public Library is holding Food for Fines beginning Monday, November 5th  through Friday, November 16th.

Return an overdue item along with a non-perishable food donation and your fine will be waived. If you have pre-existing fines for overdue items, the library will waive $1.00 for every food item you bring in.  This is a great time to return your overdue items and get rid of those fines. Of course you don’t have to have a fine to donate.

All food items will be donated to the Amherst Food Pantry that serves families in our community.

Most needed items are:

Spaghetti sauce
Peanut butter/jelly
Side dish items
Bath products
Pancake Mix
