As part of its “School Supplies for Fines” program, the Lady Lake Library donated over 100 pounds of backpacks, notebooks, pencils and more to The Villages Elementary of Lady Lake. In exchange for donations from the community, nearly $500 in library fines were forgiven. This program, held for the first time this year, is a great way for patrons to pay off fines while giving back to the community.
“The ‘School Supplies for Fines’ program not only helps our library patrons manage their outstanding fines, but also provides valuable resources for students who might not have access to necessary school supplies,” said Lady Lake Library Director Aly Herman. “The community impact of such a program is undoubtedly significant.”
The Town of Lake Lake plans to make this program an annual event.
