Holiday Giving and Fines Reduction:

All through December, the Wells Branch Library will be accepting donations for the Capital City Food Bank. 

What should I donate?
    * Healthy, non-perishable food
    * Items with intact, un-opened, packaging
    * Items with non-breakable packaging (no glass, please)
    * Food within the expiration date on the packaging
    * Food from your community or backyard garden

For every item you donate, we will reduce your library overdue fine by $1 for up to 1/2 of your total overdue debt. 
Fines for damaged or lost items cannot be reduced.


Get to know your neighborhood with the November Checklist, available here.
