Destin, Fla. – For the last 15 years library patrons have brought in food items to the Destin Library to pay off their overdue fines and in turn support a local charity. Beginning December 1st through January 5th, 2019, the Destin Library will be accepting non-perishable food or personal hygiene items for Food-for-Fines. Each item donated is good toward $1.00 in fines. All donated items received will go to Harvest House of Destin, Inc. to help those in need.
Last year, $380.00 worth of overdue fines were waived through patron participation in the program. For more information, call the Destin Library at 850-837-8572.
