Fines for Food Day at the Nelson library

The Nelson Public Library has declared that all fines collected on Monday will be donated to the Nelson Food Cupboard.

In a bid to turn tardiness into tastiness, the Nelson Public Library has declared that all fines collected on Monday will be donated to the Nelson Food Cupboard.

Late book-returners are invited to wait until that date to pay up and benefit the Food Cupboard; penalties for lost or damaged items are not included.

“People from all walks of life use the library,” says chief librarian June Stockdale. “We’re an important part of the community and so is the Nelson Food Cupboard. By working together we can fill both bellies and spirits.”

The Nelson Food Cupboard Society is a non-profit organization concerned with access to healthy food for those in need as well as providing an educational resource on nutritional health and community awareness of poverty issues.

The library will also accept additional cash donations for the Nelson Food Cupboard on Dec. 14.
