Pay Off Those Library Fines with Food Donations

The Loudoun County Public Library system is turning overdue books into food for the hungry with the Food for Fines program.

Through Sunday, May 6, the library will waive $1 in late fees for each unopened, unexpired non-perishable food item donated. Donations will be given to Loudoun Hunger Relief for distribution to area residents.

“Our county library system is a fabulous resource for all Loudoun residents and the system serves all in Loudoun equally, regardless of economic status,” stated Jennifer Montgomery, executive director of Loudoun Hunger Relief. “At Loudoun Hunger Relief, where we see those in the most need on a daily basis, we are honored to benefit from this effort by the Loudoun County Public Library. We can’t say enough about LCPL’s dedication to serving our community.”
