Food for Fines at the OCPL

Even after the holiday season has passed, there is still a need in our community. Starting Monday, Jan. 8, through Saturday, Feb. 17, the Oconee County Public Library (OCPL) will be accepting canned items and non-perishable food items in lieu of certain fines. You may bring in one item per dollar of fines you wish to have waived, up to a $5 maximum. This does not apply to fees for lost or damaged items. Items may be brought to any OCPL branch. Please no opened, unlabeled, or expired items. The food will be donated to local food banks.
