December Is Fine Forgiveness Month

Turn your fines into food for needy families all December long at the Livingston Parish Library.

Participating in Fine Forgiveness Month is easy. Simply bring in non-perishable food items to one of our five locations. For each item you bring in from Saturday, December 1 to Monday, December 31, we will waive $1.00 in library fines. All food items will be donated to Mighty Moms, a non-profit organization seeking to end childhood hunger in Livingston Parish.

Please take your donations to the front desk of any LPL branch to dismiss your fines. The items will then be placed in a Mighty Moms bin that will be delivered to Mighty Moms at the end of the month. Food donations will only be taken in place of fines. Donations will not be accepted in place of lost and/or damaged items, or other charges.

Some recommended items to donate include:

  • • Canned vegetables
  • • Canned soups
  • • Dried beans
  • • Canned meats
  • • Flour
  • • Rice
  • • Peanut butter
  • • Pasta
  • • Cornmeal
  • • Breakfast cereal and bars
  • • Any kind of canned, bagged, or boxed nonperishable food
