Food for Fines @ Your Library: July 1-31

So you’ve got some Library fines. You can pay them off and help your neighbors. For the seventh straight year we’re partnering with the St. Louis Area FoodBank to present Food for Fines. Receive $1 off* overdue fines for each non-perishable item you bring in. It’s as easy as that!
