Lady Lake Library Hosts School Supplies For Fines In July

0.7 min read| Published On: June 18th, 2024|

LADY LAKE – For the second year, the Lady Lake Library is hosting its annual “School Supplies for Fines” drive to support area children.

This program is a great way for patrons to pay off fines while giving back to the community. The library will waive overdue material fees in exchange for donations of school supplies. Donations can include No. 2 pencils, colored pencils, markers, crayons, and backpacks.

Last year, the Lady Lake Library donated over 100 pounds of school supplies to The Villages Elementary of Lady Lake. In exchange for donations from the community, nearly $500 in library fines were forgiven.“Last year, The Villages Elementary of Lady Lake greatly appreciated the donations they received,” said Aly Herman, Library Director. “It’s truly a wonderful way to give back to our community while also providing an added benefit to library patrons.”

Donations will be accepted during regular business hours at the Lady Lake Library, located at 225 W. Guava Street, from July 1-31.
