TAVARES — The Lake County Library System is launching their “Food for Fins” initiative May 19 and are accepting donations of dry or canned food items, baby products, and hygiene products and in exchange will be forgiving library fines.

The annual Spring event is held throughout 15 libraries in Lake County allowing residents to donate food and other necessities to help local food banks and charities.

Each unopened, unexpired item donated will equal $1 toward any overdue fines.

Residents without library fines are also welcome to donate and their donations will be used to “pay it forward” and will help forgive another library patron’s fines.

The event will be held at each of the 15 libraries in Lake County from May 19 through June 1.

Fines for lost, damaged, or those that have been sent to a collection agency cannot be forgiven.
