December Means Amnesty

In keeping with the season of giving, the Edith B. Siegrist Public Library is pleased to share its intention to offer amnesty to patrons owing fines throughout the month of December, in exchange for donations of food pantry items. The “Forgiving for Giving” campaign will officially kick-off during our annual Holiday Open House Thursday, November 30th, following the Vermillion Chamber and Development Company’s Downtown Parade of Lights, at approximately 6:45 pm.

The “Forgiving for Giving” campaign will collect donations of non-perishable items that will then be distributed by the Vermillion Food Pantry and Evan’s Diaper Bank during the holidays. Patrons who have accumulated overdue fees, with the exception of replacement fees, will be able to have those fines waived in exchange for donations of much-needed items, such as canned meats, canned or packaged soups, canned beans, dried pastas and grains, dried fruits, personal care items, diapers & wipes, etc.
