Food for Fines takes you from naughty to nice

The annual library program will take place December 2-16

Nov. 25, 2013 — Don’t let an overdue library fine put you on Santa’s naughty list—participate in the annual Cabarrus County Public Library Food for Fines program and avoid a lump of coal in your stocking.
Between Monday, December 2, and Monday, December 16, library patrons with overdue fines can bring a canned or packaged non-perishable food item that has not expired to any branch of the Cabarrus County Public Library System and receive a $2 per unit credit toward current overdue fines.
The program does not apply to fees for lost or damaged books. The library will distribute the food donations to local food pantries.
To make the leap from naughty to nice, bring your canned or packaged non-perishable food items to a branch of the Cabarrus County Public Library.
