Food for Fines: Pay off library fines with food donations
EL PASO, TX — Do you have a library fine you need to pay off?
The El Paso Public Library is offering customers a chance to help battle hunger by trading in food for fines.
Starting tomorrow through Saturday January 19th, the library will be accepting canned food donations in exchange for overdue fines.
Patrons will be able to pay down $1 worth of fines for every can of food or non-perishable food item donated up to $5 per account.
The library book also has to be returned in good condition.
All the goods collected will be donated as part of the 13th annual MLK Food Drive.
