Book buzz: ‘Food for fines’ starts December

The staff from the Pathfinder Library would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!

December is our “Food for Fines” drive at the Pathfinder Library. Anyone who has an overdue item from the library can bring it back with a non-perishable food item and will not have to pay overdue fines. This does not take away already accrued fines. All donations will be given to our local food pantry.

Our Christmas Open House will be from 1 to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 10. Santa Claus will make an appearance, and there will be snacks, a Christmas craft, a movie, gifts and more. We are seeking donations of new or gently used stuffed animals for this special event.
