To the editor,

The staff of the Scotland County Memorial Library would like to express our gratitude to our patrons who participated in the “Food 4 Fine$” program conducted during the past two weeks. Fines totaling $1,238.45 were waived as patrons paid for their overdue charges with non-perishable food items or returned long overdue materials. Through the community’s thoughtfulness, the Church Community Services’ food bank has received over 320 items to re-stock their shelves.

The library staff would also like to publicly thank the County’s Board of Commissioners for allowing us to assist the community via our “Food 4 Fine$” program, while also giving patrons their own opportunity to make a difference!

Very respectfully,

Leon L. Gyles

Director, Scotland County Memorial Library
