The Great Bend Public Library is conducting “Food for Fines” to support the Barton County Food Bank. From Dec. 10-29, one non-perishable food item will pay for $1 in fines on library materials. This will cover late fines as well as fees for lost and damaged items, said Jennifer King, marketing director at the library.
Food may be dropped off inside the library anytime it is open. The library will be closed for the holidays Dec. 23-25 and Dec. 30 through Jan. 1.
