With food banks across the nation struggling to meet demand, the Athens-Limestone Public Library is seeking to support a local food bank.

The Food for Fines program will run through the month of January. The library is asking people to bring canned and non-perishable food items or toiletries to the library to be donated to the Limestone County Churches Involved food pantry in downtown Athens. The library will waive $1 in fines for every item donated. Fines cannot be waived for damaged or lost items.
