Fayetteville Public Library patrons once again have an opportunity to erase or reduce late fees by donating food.

Library officials will discount overdue fees by $1 for every can or package of nonperishable food collected from Nov. 14-20, 2016.

The “Food for Fees” food drive benefits Cooperative Emergency Outreach, an organization that provides emergency assistance to residents in parts of Washington County.

Items especially needed include peanut butter, beans, canned tuna fish, canned chicken, canned soup, canned fruit, and cereal. Items that are opened, expired or in glass containers will not be accepted.
