Food for Fines


We are celebrating our birthday the week of April 10-14.  We’re 8!  As usual, we are asking you for gifts of donations to the Lonsdale Area Food Shelf.  Please drop off your unexpired non-perishable food and/or personal care items at the library that week.  For any size donation, we will waive up to $10 per card of late fees from Lonsdale Public Library.  We cannot waive lost item charges or fees from other libraries.

Planning to join us for author Peter Geye on Thursday, April 12th at 7:00 pm?  Good idea!  That’s a good chance to bring in some donations!
