NAMPA -- Pay your library fines with food!

During the month of December, the Nampa Public Library is accepting donations of non-perishable food in lieu of paying library fines.

One can of food per one dollar fine will be accepted, up to $10 per day.

Ezequiel Luna of the Nampa Public Library says the community looks forward to this event every year.

"The knowledge that they're out there wanting to contribute the money, get their fines off their account, but also I think they're also eager to give to the community as well."

Donations will go to the Nampa Care House to help feed Nampa families during the holiday season.

If you don't have a fine, but would still like to donate, you can drop off non-perishable food through December 31.
