Help the County, Get Library Fines Removed
Once again the Algoma Public Library will be collecting non-perishable food items to help you get rid of your overdue fines.
For every item you bring in $1.00 will be removed from your library fines*.
Here is how it works:
After National Library Week, the library will take all the food to the Kewaunee County Food Pantry and that food will help all the people throughout the county.
*Damaged and Replacement Fines cannot be removed!
In 2017, just over 200 lbs of food was given to the Kewaunee County Food Pantry
In 2016, 323 lbs of food was given to the Kewaunee County Food Pantry.
Cost Savings Example One:
Imagine you have $100.00 in overdue fines you would like to pay off using Food For Fines. You can do this using the 12 Packs of Raman Noodles, which can be purchased for $3.00 each at Piggly Wiggly.
12 Raman Noodles x 9 packages = 108 packages of Raman Noodles (more than enough to pay off your fine)
9 packages x $3.00 = $27.00
$100.00 Fine - $27.00 cost of food = $73.00 Savings
