LaFollette Library offers ‘Food for Fines’ this month

During the month of November, the LaFollette Public Library will forgive any overdue library fines in exchange for non-perishable food items that will be donated to the less fortunate.

The Food for Fines program has become quite popular over the years in library’s across the region as a way to not only get back overdue library books, but also to collect donations for area food banks.

The LaFollette library will forgive $1 of fines for each canned or non-perishable food item that you bring in during the entire month of November. At the end of the month, all the collected food items will be donated to the Open Arms Ministry Food Bank.

For more information call the library at 423-562-5154.
