Food for Fines & Pay It Forward:  The Yolo County Library is offering residents and library card holders two opportunities to feed and support their communities this holiday season with ‘Food for Fines’ and ‘Pay It Forward.’ 

The Library’s annual “Food for Fines” program allows library card holders to clear $1 in overdue fines for each nonperishable food item donated at the circulation desk of any Yolo County Library location.  The program runs November 4 through December 31 and there is no limit to the number of donations or reduction in fines cardholders can receive. Everyone is welcome to donate even if they do not have any overdue fines.

The Library’s ‘Pay It Forward’ program allows customers to donate money to help library card holders pay off their overdue fines.  Donors will write a message on a star-shaped note that will be posted on a board behind the circulation desk for cardholders to redeem and lower their fines.

Unless otherwise stated, all programs are sponsored by the West Sacramento Friends of the Library, are free to attend, and do not require registration.

Turner Community Library, contact library staff at (916) 375-6465 or visit the Yolo County Library at: www.yolocountylibrary.org (see calendar for Arthur F. Turner Community Library-specific events).
