The Portage Lake District Library is offering its Food for Fines program. Through the end of March, patrons can pay up to $10 in overdue fines by bringing non-perishable food items to the library. The food will be donated to local food pantries. Patrons are encouraged to bring small, individual sized portions for recipients of Little Brothers Friends of the Elderly programs. Large family size packages and canned goods will be donated to the Salvation Army and St. Vincent de Paul. Donated food must not expire before August, 2017. The Food for Fines program is for overdue fines only and does not include money owed to the library for lost or damaged materials. Those who wish to contribute food yet have no library fines are welcome to do so. All donations will be appreciated.
