Food for fines

Locals in the community load up nonperishable goods collected during a previous Food for Fines collection. To date, MCPL has collected over 165,000 items for local charities through Food for Fines.

CLAY COUNTY — Mid-Continent Public Library’s Food for Fines program is back. The biannual program returned Monday, Sept. 12 and will run through Sunday, Sept. 18.

During the week-long initiative, MCPL patrons will have the chance to donate nonperishable food items in place of money to pay off overdue fines or replacement card charges.
