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 Saturday, August 10th and running through Saturday, August 24th.

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. 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.

The most needed items are:
Spaghetti sauce
Peanut butter/jelly
Tuna Fish
Ramen Noodles
Instant Mashed Potatoes
Rice Mixes
Stuffing
Bath products
Pancake Mix/ Syrup
