Posted at 1:14 PM, Apr 08, 2019

To celebrate National Library Week, the Lompoc Public Library System is accepting food donations as payment for overdue fines.

The Food for Fines program runs April 7-13.

Library members will get one dollar waived for each non-perishable food item donated. All of the collected food will be donated to the Lompoc Food Pantry. A combination of food and cash will be accepted to pay off fines.

Glass containers, opened or damaged packages, and repackaged or expired food will not be accepted. The Food for Fines offer does not include replacement fees for lost or damaged materials, collection agency fees, card replacement fees, or fines from another library system.

The Lompoc Public Library is located at 501 E. North Ave. The Village Library is located at 3755 Constellation Rd.
