Larkspur Library launches ‘Food for Fines’ program

From MarinIJ

” For the first time, the Larkspur Library is offering a “Food for Fines” program, in which library users who donate nonperishable foods during operating hours through Dec. 31 are relieved of some or all of their overdue library fees.To help support the Larkspur Library, the 10-branch Marin County Free Library is waiving fines for its patrons if they instead donate food to the Larkspur Library, which is housed within City Hall at 400 Magnolia Ave.The food — which doesn’t have to be the same value as the fines — will be donated to the SF-Marin Food Bank.”
