Tuesday, Nov. 24, is the last day of the Metro Public Library's "Food For Fines" program. If you've been holding onto that copy of The Lost Symbol for too long (and I know you have because I've been on the waiting list for a month), bring it back with a donation for the Second Harvest Food Bank and all is forgiven.
Exchange canned goods and other foods for library overdue fines to support Mayor Karl Dean's campaign to help Second Harvest Food Bank during Food for Fines, Nov. 9-24 at Nashville Public Library.
Library cardholders will get $1 in current fines* waived for each can or package of food donated during the drive, held at all Nashville Public Library locations.
Items especially needed include:
--canned meats (tuna fish, beef stew)
--canned vegetables and fruit
--macaroni and cheese
--rice and pasta
Bring canned goods, or items in boxes or plastic bags or jars (no glass can be accepted) to the circulation desk at your library. Don't forget to bring your library card!
* Replacement fees for lost or damaged materials, fees for losses that are in billing or collection stages, and lost card fees are not included in the food drive.
