Food Donations Accepted for Fines
The Berkshire Athenaeum offers a modified fines amnesty until Saturday, April 19, when they will accept non-perishable food items in lieu of paying fines for overdue books. Food will be collected at the Adult Circulation Desk and at the Children’s Service Desk; alert a staff librarian prior to depositing the item into the collection boxes. Food will be accepted for payment of overdue and outstanding overdue fines, but not replacement costs of lost or damaged materials. The Athenaeum also encourages general donations of food. All donations will go to food pantries in Pittsfield, Ma. For details, call 413-499-9480, extension 201.
