Clear your library fines and help the less fortunate at the same time! The Natrona County Public Library (NCPL) will hold its annual Food for Fines drive December 1-15. Library users may donate nonperishable food items at any library branch. In exchange, accrued library fines will be cleared. The promotion applies to late fees on books and other library items, and does not include fees for lost or damaged items or collection accounts.

To participate, bring canned food to any NCPL branch, including the bookmobile, between December 1 and 15. All collected food will be donated to the Central Wyoming Rescue Mission to benefit our local community.
