Donate Food to Eat Up Those Library Fines

During National Library Week, the Lompoc Public Library System is accepting food donations to help those in need as payment for overdue fines.

The Food For Fines program runs April 10 through April 15 at the Lompoc Public Library, 501 E. North Ave., and Village Library, 3755 Constellation Road.

Library members will get $1 waived for each canned or packaged, shelf-stable pantry item submitted to the libraries as part of Food For Fines. All food collected will be donated to the Lompoc Food Pantry.

Change will not be provided. However, a combination of food and cash may be used to pay off fines.

Food For Fines does not include replacement fees for lost or damaged materials, collection agency fees, card replacement fees, fines related to items that have been borrowed from a library outside the Lompoc Public Library System, and/or future overdue fines.

Also, the following items will not be accepted: glass containers, opened/damaged packages, repackaged or expired food.

Direct questions to the Lompoc Public Library, 875-8775. For more information about the Lompoc Public Library System locations, hours and programming, visit cityoflompoc.com/library.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
