Hall Memorial Library accepting food for fines

 NORTHFIELD — From Monday, December 23 through Tuesday, December 31, those who donate non-perishable food items for local food pantries to Hall Memorial Library can clear their fines.

Drop off items at the circulation desk and wipe your slate clean. Fines does not include payment for lost items. Only current or past due fines accrued can be forgiven. When donating please consider the total of the fines, and donate in good conscience. There are many people in need in this challenging economy and the pinch is felt more acutely during the holidays.

The library is closed on December 24 and 25 and will be open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on December 31.
