'Amnesty Week' at public library to benefit Hunger Coalition
From Monday, April 15, through Saturday, April 20, area residents who have overdue books or still have fines for books returned late will have a chance to "redeem themselves" at the Watauga County Public Library.
Bring in cans of staple food items, and a credit of $1 per can will be applied towards fees levied for late returns. All canned foods will be given to the Hunger and Health Coalition for local distribution to those in need. Canned food redemption may be applied to late fees only, not towards damaged or lost items.
The main library is located at 140 Queen St. in downtown Boone. The Western Branch library is located at 1085 Old U.S. 421 in Sugar Grove. For more information, call (828) 264-8784.
