Escondido Public Library’s annual Holiday Food for Fines event was a community success. This popular program provided Library patrons with the opportunity to clear up to $20.00 in fines from their account through food donations.
The collection drive ran from November 26 through December 31, 2018, and the library accumulated 56 crates of food weighing 1,680 pounds. Proceeds from the drive were donated to Interfaith Community Services in Escondido which distributed the food to families in need throughout the North County area (www.interfaithservices.org/).
