February is Needs and Things for Fines Month

News Release


February is Needs and Things for Fines Time at Penn Yan Public Library

For the month of February the library is collecting Needs and Things for the Living Well.  Library patrons may bring in hygiene and cleaning items to have overdue fines forgiven.  Fines will only be forgiven on currently checked out materials being returned.  One Needs and Things item is required for each overdue item being returned in order for a fine to be forgiven.  The library cannot offer this program to our patrons who have had their PYPL accounts sent to collections.  The library will also collect donated items for the Living Well even if a patron does not have any overdue fines.

Needs and Things list:  dish soap, laundry soap, diapers (size 3 and up), baby wipes, toilet paper, paper towels, facial tissues, deodorant, razors and shaving cream, toothpaste, toothbrushes, bar soap, deodorant and shampoo.
