    The library is accepting non-perishable foods in lieu of money for overdue fines during the month of December. In the spirt of Food for Fines, the amount of the donation should be comparable to the amount of the fine owed. There is no limit to the amount of fines that can be waived, but food canot be used to pay for lost or damaged books. Donated food items should be in good condition and not have expired dates. Collected food will be donated to the Wilmington Food Pantry. Suggested items are listed on the Community Fund website.

    Residents without power came to the library to use the Internet, check their email, and get warm. Many commented to staff that they appreciated having the library to come to.  We are pleased to be able to provide this service in time of need.
