Food for Fines food drive at Vineyard Haven library


Vineyard Haven library will hold a Food for Fines food drive throughout the months of February and March. During this time, library patrons can pay their overdue fines with canned goods or healthy nonperishable food items. Donors are asked to give unopened, current items only, and check expiration dates. The suggested donation is one item for each $2 waived in fines, and applies to late fees only, not to replacement charges for lost or damaged items. The food collected will be given to the Island Food Pantry for distribution to those in need in the community.
