During National Library Week, Three Rivers Library will be accepting Food for Fines*. Bring in non-expired food items and we will waive one line of fines for each donation! Donate as much as you like, even if you don't currently have fines; you will receive a fine coupon for donating (limit of $5 a day). Donations will go to local food pantries.
To thank you for being a part of the library community, Three Rivers Libraries will also be celebrating National Library Week with competitions, special prizes and a grand prize raffle to top off the festivities! Visit our National Library Week webpage for more information.
*Fine waivers and coupons will be applied to fines on Three Rivers Public Library Cards only and cannot be applied to lost/damaged item fees or collection accounts. Limit of one donation/fine coupon per day, worth up to $5. Each coupon is good for one time use only and will expire April 2015.
