Food for fines: Library’s Amnesty Month benefits pantry

NORTH LIBERTY— It happens. A person checks out a book from the library, with every intention of returning it on time. But then, something comes up and the book sits, and sits, and sits some more until a fine accrues.
Director Dee Crowner and her staff at the North Liberty Community Library have a novel way to pay-off sin of remissness.
Through the month of January, patrons can bring in non-perishable food items in lieu of cash. The food is then donated to the North Liberty Community Pantry. Each item is worth $1 off the patron’s fine. The food drive is a key element of Fine Amnesty Month.
