Do have overdue library books? Well, from Jan. 14 - Feb. 15, you can substitute your fine with some food at the Peabody Institute Library.
The library is again running its annual "Food for Fines" program, which supports the city's food pantry, Haven from Hunger, at a time when food donations are not as abundant after the holiday season.
Donations of canned goods and other non-perishable items will be accepted to clear overdue fines on Peabody-owned library materials.
The program will run at all three library branches: the Main Library, the South Branch and the West Branch.
All donations benefit Haven from Hunger. For more information call 978-531-0100.
