Donations of non-perishables, such as peanut butter, canned tuna and bags of rice, will be accepted as payment of fines owed on Howland Public Library books, cds, dvds, and other materials. Non-perishables will be donated to our Main Street neighbors at The Salvation Army. Food for Fines doesn’t apply to fees for lost or damaged materials or for long-overdue items from other libraries. Items past their expiration dates and homemade items cannot be accepted. Fine free? Good for you! But please consider donating, too. Pictured: Ruthie Maldonado from The Salvation Army says, “People need food!” Help your neighbors. Help yourselves. Return overdue HPL items with a non-perishable item (or two!) this holiday season. Happy holidays from all of us at the Howland Public Library!
