Food for Fines at Mason County Library
Wednesday, April 15, 2009 • Posted April 15, 2009

The Friends of Mason County’s M. Beven Eckert Memorial Library is celebrating National Library Week, April 12th through April 18th, in a big way!

The newest addition to this week’s activities is the FOOD FOR FINES program, where one can of food will count for $1.00 in library fines. All food collected will be donated to Mason’s Food Bank, helping our neighbors continue to feed nutritious meals to their families in these tough economic times. This offer is open to any patron, who for any reason, has overdue fines at the library. The project will begin in mid-April on Wednesday, April 15th and runs through the month of April, until April 30th and is a service to the community sponsored by the Friends of the Library.

The annual Book Sale is also currently underway. Beginning on Monday, April 12th, the sale is offering to the community tremendous bargains in used books, many of them gently ‘pre-viewed’ and some never read! Also included are a big selection of movies on VHS and DVD as well as music and books on cassette and CD. Remember that audio books are great ‘take-alongs’ for any age traveler, whether going by train, plane or automobile!

The final day for the Book Sale will be on Saturday April 18th from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. and will include Baked Goods from Mason’s premier cooks, so stop by during the week for great bargains and then return to enjoy the ‘Read and Feed’ this Saturday!

For more information about any of these projects or how you, too, can join the league of Friends, contact the Mason County Library at 347-5446. For each member’s small contribution, the combined impact for our community is monumental!
