Yes, that’s right dear patrons! If you have any past due library fees you’re sweating about, your “get out of jail free” card is finally here! If any of you remember last year’s program, it was called Food for Thought. Sure enough, we’re bringing it back, so you’ll have a fresh start clearing up your overdue fines for 2016. Here is how it works:
For every one canned or non-perishable food item that you donate to any Las Vegas-Clark County library from April 1st to 30th, staff will clear $2.00 in fines off of your account. A great fact to know is that there is no limit to how much you can donate! Have $30 in late fees? Then bring in 15 food items and your account is all clear! Or bring in 5 food items and get $10 cleared off your account–whatever works for you! It’s one of those cases of the more the merrier.
If you are a mom, dad, or legal guardian, you can donate food for fees on your kids’ accounts as well! If you have any friends or family members out there that have shunned the library for years because they were scared to address that little ol’ fee they got forever and a day ago, kick them out of their chairs and tell them to come in with some food! We will happily clear up their card for them. We’ll even throw in a free replacement card. Why not!? We’re practically giving this service away!!! Actually… yes! We are giving this away. We provide free library services here! You’d have to be a sucker not to go for this phenomenal deal (don’t worry though, no judgement).
Now for the disclaimer (Boo): Food donations may not be used to pay for lost LVCCLD materials. And that’s it! No other catches. See!? Good things! Questions? Come in and talk to us, we’re here to help.
Again, this is taking place during the ENTIRE MONTH OF APRIL! Though if you come in on the 1st, I can’t guarantee you won’t get a severe amount of April Fool’s jokes played on you in the process. Oh! This also won’t be good on April 31st (hope you all understand why). I imagine by now you are thinking that I am having WAY too much fun with this blog. 😉
OK, I will stop myself from doing any more gabbing. The facts are pretty basic and straightforward. Thus, thanks for bearing with me, readers. So just once more, each food item you bring in equals $2.00 toward fees cleared off your card if you donate it in person anytime during the month of April. Not a whole lot to remember, nor forget! Everybody wins! So now there is NO excuse not to come in and get your cards all straightened out and clear of fees so you can get back on track and enjoy all the wonderful services we provide here at LVCCLD. I look forward to seeing you all in April. Until then dear readers, stay classy…stay reading…stay fine free!
