ST. CHARLES – This Thanksgiving season, the St. Charles Public Library is partnering with the Salvation Army to help local residents in need.

Through Nov. 17, St. Charles cardholders can participate in the library’s Food for Fines program, allowing patrons to pay off their library fines by donating non-perishable food items. All fines, no matter how old or how large, are included.

All donations collected will go to the Salvation Army food pantry. Patrons who do not have any late fees may still donate items for the food pantry.

Nonperishable, non-expired food (no glass containers) should be placed in the collection bins located near the library's circulation desk and patrons should inform the desk staff so the fine will be cleared. Suggested items include canned fruits and vegetables; canned meats (chicken and tuna); canned stews, broth, chowder, chili, soups; cereal, boxed meals such as Hamburger Helper or macaroni and cheese; beans; pasta and rice; or peanut butter.

The St. Charles Public Library is located at One South Sixth Avenue in St. Charles. For more information, call 630-584-0076.
