Food For Fines
November 18, 2016 through December 10, 2016

Westville Public Library is sponsoring a Food For Fines program from November 18 through December 10, 2016.  You must be a Westville Public Library card holder to participate.  Patrons may bring to the library non-perishable food that is not past the expiration date.  Each plastic grocery bag full of food will be worth $10.00, and each paper grocer bag full of food will be worth $15.00 towards outstanding Westville Library fines only.  Charges for lost or damaged items will not be eligible.  All food collected will be donated to a local Christmas basket program for needy families.   This is a wonderful way to reduce your outstanding fines and help a family have food for Christmas dinner.  For further information please call the library at 267-3170.
