Do you have overdue library fines and some extra groceries?
If so, the Linebaugh Public Library System is offering an easy way to pay off those overdue fines.
For one week, patrons of the library will have the option to bring in canned goods to pay off library fines.
From Sunday, Oct. 14, through Friday, Oct. 20, the Linebaugh Public Library System will be collecting food donations to help those in need.
The public library system comprises the Linebaugh Public Library in Murfreesboro, Myrtle Glanton Lord Library at Patterson Park, Smyrna Public Library in Smyrna, and the Eagleville Bicentennial Public Library in Eagleville.
All locations will be participating in the collection drive.
Smyrna’s collection will go to the Smyrna-La Vergne Food Bank, and all other sites will collect for The Salvation Army.
Bring canned goods to the circulation desk, and the library will waive $1 in fines for each can donated to help feed the hungry.
Please bring only new, unopened cans within expiration date.
Even if you don’t have any library fines, you can still help out.
Last year, Rutherford County residents donated nearly 5,000 cans to this food drive.
To find out if you owe any fines, go to www.linebaugh.org to review your account.
Because both organizations are committed to helping provide for those in need, you can be sure that donations are going to a good cause.
Linebaugh Public Library is located at 105 W. Vine St. in Murfreesboro, as well as the Myrtle Glanton Lord Library, which is inside the Patterson Park Community Center at 521 Mercury Blvd.
