Got overdue library fines - and some extra groceries? If so, the Linebaugh Public Library System is offering you an easy way to pay off those overdue fines! For one week, patrons of the library will have the option to bring in canned goods to pay off library fines. Not only will you be getting rid of some fines, but you will be helping your neighbor too.
From October 14 through October 20, 2012, the Linebaugh Public Library System (Linebaugh Public Library inMurfreesboro, Myrtle Glanton Lord Library atPattersonPark, Smyrna Public Library inSmyrna, and the Eagleville Bicentennial Public Library in Eagleville) will be collecting food donations.Smyrna’s collection will go to the Smyrna-La Vergne Food Bank, and all other sites will collect for The Salvation Army.
Bring your canned goods to the Library Circulation desk, and we will waive your fines for overdue items. Charges for lost or damaged items or referral fees cannot be waived. We will waive one dollar in fines for each can donated to help feed the hungry. Please bring only new, unopened cans within expiration date. No fines? You can help out and make a food donation anyway. Last year, our patrons donated nearly 5,000 cans to this food drive!
Since both the Food Bank and The Salvation Army are committed to helping provide for those in need, you can be sure that donations are going to a good cause. Remember: the library is only collecting canned goods for the food drive.
To find out if you owe any fines, simply go to the library’s website (www.linebaugh.org) and choose “review my account”. Enter your library card number and PIN (typically the last six digits of your library card).
