Evans Public Library in Vandalia is sponsoring their annual Food for Fines program. The program allows people who have library fines to reduce them by donating non-perishable food items that are then given to the local food bank. The food bank that will receive the donations is the Fayette County Food Pantry, managed by CEFS. To participate, bring your non-perishable food items to Evans Public Library between November 1st and December 31st. For every food item donated, the library will deduct $1 from your fines and/or replacement costs of lost or damaged items. There is no limit on the number or amount of fines that can be cleared. For more information, contact the Evans Public Library at 283-2824.
