Food for Fines Amnesty Event

January 8, 2015

The High Point Public Library will offer library customers the opportunity to start the new year with a clear account while helping local hunger ministries and Guilford County Animal Control re-stock shelves depleted by holiday demands.  From Sunday, January 18 through Saturday, January 31, the library will waive $1 in fines for each non-perishable human food or pet food item donated at the library.  There is no limit to the amount of food accepted, and it must be in undamaged and unexpired condition.  The amnesty applies to overdue fines only. Customers are responsible for other fees.

The High Point Public Library is committed to nurturing the joy of reading, sharing the power of knowledge, strengthening the sense of community and  enhancing cultural and  economic vitality.  For more information about the Food for Fines Amnesty Event, contact Shelly Witcher at 336-883-3651.
