It's Food For Fines time!

This December, we're accepting nonperishable food donations in lieu of overdue fines. 

Each nonperishable item that you donate will offset $5 of fines.

You'll be taking care of those late dues AND helping needing families in the Clayton area.

The items will be donated to House of Hope of NC and Clayton Area Ministries food banks. 

For details, call us at 919-553-5542 or email claytonlibrary@townofclaytonnc.org
