[ARCHIVED] Lewis & Clark Library’s Annual Food For Fines to Benefit Helena Food Share!


Food for Fines!


March 30, 2017 (Helena, MT)—Your Lewis & Clark Library is offering amnesty on overdue items during National Library Week, April 9-16th, announced John Finn, Lewis & Clark Library Director.  “Simply bring in non-perishable food items along with all of your over-due items and the Public Services Staff will waive your fines,” explained Finn.

Some restrictions do apply, however.  Patrons must have all over-due items turned in and must present their food share donations in order to have their account cleared.  Also, patrons with accounts in collections, or who owe for damaged or lost items, will not be able to benefit from Food for Fines.

The Lewis & Clark Library will donate all collected food items to the Helena Food Share. “This is a fantastic opportunity to clear up your Library account while helping out your community at the same time,” commented Finn.

The Main Branch of the Library at 120 S. Last Chance Gulch, as well as the Branch libraries in Augusta, Lincoln, East Helena, and the Bookmobile are offering Amnesty from Library fines during National Library Week, April 9-16th.  For more information, log onto
