If you’re looking to pay your library fines, El Paso Public Library will accept food donations as part of its Food for Fines program.

The donations will be collected through Jan. 13, after which point they will then be donated to the 18th Annual MLK Canned Food Drive.

“This is a great opportunity for those with outstanding library materials to pay off their fines and do something good for the community at the same time. It’s a win-win,” El Paso Public Library interim director Mark Pumphrey said.

The library will reduce fines by $1 for every can of food donated, up to $5 per day.
