Children can pay library fines with food donations
During December, children can "pay" their fines at Bud Werner Memorial Library while helping needy local families by participating in the library's Food for Fines Program. For every item of nonperishable food a child brings to the library, the library will cancel $1 in overdue fines. All food will be donated to the LIFT-UP of Routt County Food Bank. The program is for children 17 and younger.
