Staff Recommended Motion
Permission for Lady Lake Library to participate in this initiative.
During the month of July, library fines and overdue materials will be forgiven in exchange for donations of school supply items. This program is exactly like the Food for Fines program and is another way to continue to support children in our community.
Donations will be accepted at the Lady Lake library during regular hours. There are no limits to the number of donations per person, though fines cannot be forgiven for library items that are lost or damaged.
Those without fines are also encouraged to donate items as each item will be used anonymously to forgive another patron’s fines.
This is the first year of this program. The Food for Fines program has been very successful in the past.
