Local Libraries Accept Food for Fines: December 1 - 31, 2014

The Monterey Public Library and Pacific Grove Public Library will accept donations of unopened, non-perishable food as an option to payment of overdue fines on library materials. All food donations will be given to local food banks which are in great need of replenishment at this time of the year. The Libraries benefit by having overdue items returned so that others may borrow them.  Bring your food donations to the public libraries in Monterey or Pacific Grove, or to the Monterey Public Library Bookmobile.  

The Monterey Public Library is located at 625 Pacific Street, Monterey, and the Pacific Grove Public Library is located at 550 Central Avenue, Pacific Grove. For more information call Linda Pagnella at (831) 648-5760 or Inga Waite at (831) 646-3477.
