Food for Fines will be in effect from March 15 - April 15 only. In partnership with the Healthy Food Initiatives with the Hockomock YMCA, the Plainville Public Library will be accepting donations of healthy non-perishable items which will be donated to the school-based food pantry at the Wood School in Plainville. The school-based food pantry model is designed to increase access to healthy food for children. Families can face many barriers to utilizing town food pantries, including limited operating hours, demanding work schedules, and lack of transportation. These barriers are removed when children can take food home directly from school.
For each non-perishable food item donated between March 15 and April 15 at the Plainville Public Library we will waive the fine on one item on your library card. Food cannot be used towards lost or damaged items.
We know the construction around us has been a little crazy in the last few months so we offer our customers these two great opportunities to pay down their fines with healthy food or to return late or lost items without fines as we welcome our new Town Hall neighbors in March.
