Georgia libraries swap fines for food

November 25th, 2011 by Staff Report in Chattnow Outabout

The Cherokee Regional Library System's 2011 Food for Fines Campaign, which allows patrons with overdue fines to pay them off with a canned-food item, will continue through the end of business Wednesday.

One food can donation removes up to $1 in overdue fines.

Foods gathered will help restock food banks in Dade and Walker counties in North Georgia.

The Cherokee Regional Library System comprises Rossville, Chickamauga, LaFayette-Walker and Dade County public libraries.

For more information, call Darla Chambliss, assistant director and community services librarian, at 706-638-8311.
