MARQUETTE, MI-- Peter White Public Library is collecting food because of overdue books.
The “Food for Fines” program kicked off Monday. Library staff are collecting canned goods and other non-perishable items as part of the TV6 Canathon. One dollar of fines will be forgiven for each donated food item. Those whose books are returned on time can get a free film rental per donation.
Items can be donated at the check-out desk on the main floor during library hours.
Peter White has been a TV 6 Canathon drop-off location since the start of the program in 1982. The Food for Fines program, in its eighth year at the library, runs until Wednesday, December 4.
