Food For Fines Going On Now At Howland Public Library


The Food for Fines program at Beacon’s Howland Public Library is going on now through Sunday, December 30. This is your chance to do double-duty on clearing your late fines at the library, at the same time as donating to a food pantry.

While the program is called Food for Fines, the library encourages you to donate personal-care items too, like tampons, adult diapers (Depends), and even new socks. People do a lot of walking, and it’s hard to do in run-down socks! Conveniently, Rite Aid is located almost across the street, where you can find a lot of these items! Think baby formula, toothpaste, shampoo… anything you would want to help take care of yourself or your family.
