Library collects food instead of fines

T.B. Scott Free Library will celebrate National Library Week, April 14 to 20, with food, programs and an opportunity to give back to the community.

For the 14th consecutive year, library patrons are encouraged to settle their overdue fines and, at the same time, help others in need through the Food For Fines program.

T.B. Scott Free Library will offset $1 of library fines for each item of food brought to the library's circulation desk. Food donations will be given to the Merrill Food Pantry. Up to $50 in fines per patron may be waived through Food For Fines.

Refreshments will be available to the public during National Library Week in the lower lobby. Two Words Worth Hearing programs will round out National Library Week events: a panel discussion of a new book about the Wisconsin Uprising of 2011 at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, April 18, and the Boldly Go Games board gaming event from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, April 20.

To learn more about the library, call 715-536-7191 or go to www.tbscottlibrary.org or T.B. Scott Free Library on Facebook.
