For those Ferndale Library cardholders out there feeling some shame and anxiety about unpaid overdue fees, this April is the time to come back and make amends, provided you bring a can of soup, or maybe some pasta! The Ferndale Area District Library will be collecting donations of nonperishable food items for Gleaners Community Food Bank, starting Mon., Apr. 3, running through Sat., Apr 15. The “Food For Fines” program swaps in one item for $1 off of any unpaid charge for late materials.
Starting April 3, the Ferndale Library is encouraging any members of the community, even those who have pristine library accounts, to join in Gleaners’ campaign to combat hunger to visit the library with their food donations.
