Yuma County Library Accepts Canned Food Donations In Place Of Overdue Book Fines

You can bring in cans of food to pay for overdue fines during the 24th Annual Food for Fines program at Yuma County Libraries. From December 9th to December 21st, one dollar in overdue fines will be cleared for every 10 ounces or larger can of food that is donated. Sarah Wisdom of the Yuma County Libraries tells us more.
Only labeled cans will be accepted. No glass jars, or dented or expired cans will be accepted. All canned food will be donated to the Yuma Community Food Bank. All library patrons are encouraged to bring cans for the food bank – no fines are required. Over 3,000 cans of food were collected in 2012.
