Loading up Food for Fines at library

Deb Wahl has already taken one cart load of food donations to the Becker County Food Pantry and a second load is ready to go. She said the library will be collecting through the month of December as well.

All Lake Agassiz Regional Library branches are accepting Food for Fines this month and December, and the Detroit Lakes branch is filling shopping carts with donations for the Becker County Food Pantry.

Overdue library materials can be returned and fines will be erased this holiday season in exchange for non-perishable food donations.

One shopping cart full has already been donated and a second is on its way with November not even over yet. Deb Wahl, Detroit Lakes Library, said that not only are people bringing in late books and giving a donation, but the public is bringing food just to donate as well.

The Food for Fines is not valid on lost items or for replacement charges.
