On the Shelves: What’s Happening at the Vernonia Library

“Food for Fines” Returns to the Vernonia Public Library!

On December 16, 2013 you can help feed our community while paying off your library fines.  The Vernonia Public Library will be sponsoring a food drive and fine amnesty program to benefit Vernonia Cares Food Bank.  For each food item donated, $1 will be credited toward your fine balance up to a maximum of $10.00.  Please note that credit cannot be applied to lost or damaged book replacement fees.  Patrons who do not have fines are also encouraged to make donations of non-perishable food items.  Home-canned items, cans that are past their expiration date or are dented or damaged, or cans with barcodes lined or scratched through will not be accepted.
