The Lafourche Parish Public Library is offering its Fine Forgiveness / Fine Free program in January. The library will forgive charges in any amount for overdue, damaged, or lost items (except laptop fines) in exchange for varying amounts of nonperishable food or pet supplies (pet food, litter, etc.).
Any person who owes money to the library (for anything except laptop fines) can bring in items according to a suggested donation schedule to clear their library record and once again enjoy library services.
Donated items will benefit local community organizations such as food banks and animal rescue organizations. The library will also forgive fines for any overdue items (except laptops) returned in good condition in January.
For more information, visit your local library branch.
