Library forgives late fees for food
By JAMIE PATTERSON
The Ricks Memorial Library will be waiving late fees this month in exchange for donations to the Manna House.
“We have a lot of late fees because people let the return date go by them,” said Miranda Purvis, with the library. “This is a way for us to work together with the public, as well as the Manna House.”
Until Nov. 20, the library will waive fines for food. Each item donated will be equivalent to $1 removed from the records.
The Manna House, located across the street from the library, serves as a food ministry to the needy within the community.
“We wanted to give back since we are all located in the heart of the community here,” Purvis said. “A lot of the Manna House patrons come in and out of the library. We wanted to do something for them.”
