JMC Library Trading Cans for Fines

JACKSON, Tenn. - A local library is letting residents pay their book fines in a unique way.

It's all part of the Food for Fines program, put on by the Jackson-Madison County Library.

They are collecting canned or box food items for the Regional Inter-Faith Association.

For each item you donate, the library will take $1 off your overdue fines, excluding lost or damage fees.

"The library is an important place for the community, to bring the community together, and there's a lot of need here, and so it's a way for us to give back," said librarian Jennifer Brewer.

The library will be collecting food donations until December 31.
