||The Lake Wales Public Library will conduct their annual National Library Week “Food for Fines” beginning April 15 continuing through May 4.
“Food for Fines” is a semi-annual fines amnesty program that provides library patrons the opportunity to “pay” overdue fines with a donation of food to the Lake Wales Care Center.
Non-perishable food collected in this drive will go to the Lake Wales Care Center’s Food Pantry.
Overdue materials may be returned with at least five non-perishable food items, or outstanding fines owed may be “paid” with the same donation. Donated food must not be expired or opened, these will not be accepted.
Lost or damaged materials are not included in this amnesty program.
