Food for Fines event at local libraries through November
Placeholder Image

Throughout November, Dawson County Library and the Lumpkin County Library will accept two cans or boxes of nonperishable food for each $1 of fines.


Please note that fines can only be removed from items owned by, checked out from and returned to Dawson and Lumpkin county libraries.


The food will be distributed to local food pantries. The event is an opportunity to clear up library fines and make someone’s holiday season better at the same time, according to library staff.


For more information, call the Dawson County Library at (706) 344-3690 or the Lumpkin County Library at (706) 864-3668.
