---- — SANDOWN - To encourage residents to return items, May is designated as “Fine Forgiveness” month at the library. All overdue materials returned during May will have up to $15.00 in fines removed from the borrower’s account.
May is also the time that the Library collects food for the Sandown Food Pantry. Patrons are encouraged - but not obligated! - to “pay” their overdue fines by bringing in non-perishable food to the library. The food will be collected and given to the Food Pantry. Items needed are: snacks for children, juices boxes, cookies, small canned hams, tuna, or chicken, coffee, cereal, laundry soap, toilet paper (single or 4 packs), tissues, shampoo, and shaving cream.
