The Palatine Public Library District is launching a program that helps patrons clear up their accounts and give back to the community at the same time. The Food for Fines campaign runs Monday, April 30, to Friday, June 1. Patrons who bring in at least one can or jar of food, and also pay half their outstanding fines, will have the remaining balance of the fine waived. Food for Fines doesn't include waiving fees for lost or damaged items or charges assessed for the collection agency. All food items will be donated to the Palatine Township Food Pantry. Peanut butter, jelly and tomato products are in high demand. Library services and programs are available to patrons who owe less than $5 in fines and fees.
