White County Regional Libraries To Offer “Food for Fines”

The White County Regional Library System announces that November 2012 will be a Food for Fines month.  This one-time event will be offered at the Beebe Public Library, Bradford Public Library, Baldwin Memorial Library, the Lyda Miller Public Library, the Pangburn Public Library, the Rose Bud Public Library, and the Searcy Public Library.  Library customers are required to return all overdue items to the circulation desk along with one or more non-perishable food items for all accrued fines on the account to be forgiven.  Lost or damaged items must be paid for or brought up to date and are not included in this fine amnesty.  Each library branch will choose a charitable organization in their community to receive the food. This fine amnesty allows library customers to receive a clean slate where they will once again be encouraged to take full advantage of the wide range of services the library has to offer.

The White County Regional Library System’s mission is to “be at all times a dynamic public resource…providing information, materials and services to stimulate ideas, advance knowledge and enhance the quality of life for all members of the public library community.” For more information about the Food for Fines month, library customers should stop by the White County Regional Library Branch nearest them or call 501-268-2449.
