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 through December 31 and there is no limit to the number of donations or reduction in fines cardholders can receive. All are 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.

All programs are sponsored by the Friends of the Esparto Regional Library, are free to attend and, unless otherwise stated, no registration is required. For more information about events at the Esparto Regional Library, contact library staff at (530) 787-3426 or visit the Yolo County Library at (see calendar for Esparto Regional Library-specific events).
