Food for Fines
In the Spirit of the Season
Monday, December 8th - Saturday, December 13th
during library hours
The library is offering an opportunity to help those in our community and a way to waive your library fines.  If you bring a non-perishable, unopened food item that has not expired, and won't for awhile, you will receive $5 off of your current fines.  You may bring up to 6 food items that would clear a $30 fine.  This offer is only for fines at Phillips Free Library, no other libraries, and does not include fines for lost or damaged items.  All donated foods will be given to the Homer United Methodist church for their food pantry.  
Maker Space Hours
