Steamboat Springs Do your kids have overdue fines at Bud Werner Memorial Library? During December, kids can "pay" off their fines while helping local families in need by participating in the library's annual Food for Fines Program. For every can of food children bring in to the library, the library will cancel $1 of their overdue fines, up to $10. Nonperishable items such as toothpaste and diapers are accepted, too. All items will be donated to the LIFT-UP Food Bank. This program is for children 17 and younger, and it takes place only during December.
