People with library overdue fees at the Hermiston Public Library can have their debt forgiven.
Food for Fines will forgive $1 in fines for each non-perishable food item donated, up to $5. Donations will waive library fines, not fees for lost or damaged books.
People can stop by the library between Feb. 1-16 to take advantage of the program. Food collected will be donated to the local food bank to be distributed to those in need in the community. Food must be in original, undamaged packaging. Also, donations must not include food items beyond the expiration date.
The Hermiston Public Library is located at 235 E. Gladys Ave. For more information, call 541-567-2882.
