It's February, and that means it's Food for Fines Month at the Merrimack Public Library. For this month only, you can pay off your late charges by bringing in a non-perishable food item. Please check expiration dates! We cannot redistribute expired food. All donations will be divided between Merrimack's three local food pantries. Want to make a financial donation instead? All cash collected will also be distributed to the pantries.
This is a great way to clear up current and old fines, especially if the amount owed is preventing you from using your card. Lost or damaged book charges are not covered by this amnesty. Food for Fines runs until Sunday, February 28 at 5 pm.
