Springfield–Greene County Library patrons can exchange Food for Fines this month! Through the third annual Food for Fines food drive, Jan. 22–28, library patrons can receive a 50-cent credit on their library fine balance for each donated item of non-perishable food.
Food can be dropped off during regular business hours at the checkout desk of any branch library or the bookmobile, and there is no limit so patrons can pay off all of their fines.
For locations and hours, please visit thelibrary.org.
