Giving Tree; a chance to convert overdue library materials into food


We have instituted our first Giving Tree which has netted over 1,500 lbs of nonperishable food in the first 10 days. Farmington people are very generous. Library fines a good thing??? Your library fines can turn into a great thing! If you return your overdue items between June 2 and June 28, they can help fight hunger in Farmington! The following was contributed by Jeanne Johnson: “Even though I was just contribution and didn't owe any fines, I think your Food For Fines Program is a great idea. I also like the idea that non food items--tooth brush, paste--- were accepted items. "
