In December, the Faulkner County Library conducted its second Food For Fines food drive. Any patron with a library fine had the fine waived when they brought in canned or otherwise non-perishable food items.
The first Food For Fines drive was conducted in August, and food donations were taken to the St. Peter’s food pantry.
This drive delivered 1,155 pounds of food to CAPCA.
Connie Staal, circulation manager at the Faulkner County Library, spearheaded the food drives. Staal will retire at the end of January after 10 years of service to the library system.
