Library will forgive fines for food


Hays Public Library is hosting its second annual Food for Fines from Sunday through Dec. 21. For two weeks, patrons are given the opportunity to bring non-perishable food items in exchange for forgiven fines. Each item is worth $1 toward fines. The food collected will be given to the Community Assistance Center. Boxes will be placed at the circulation desks on the first and second floors. There also will be boxes for freewill donations located at the main entrance. For more information, contact Luci Bain at (785) 625-9014.
