Food donation good as cash at U.P. library

HOUGHTON (AP) — An Upper Peninsula library is accepting food donations instead of cash for overdue book fines.

The Portage Lake District Library in Houghton will waive up to $10 in fines this winter if a borrower donates non-perishable food. The food goes to The Salvation Army, St. Vincent De Paul and Little Brothers Friends of the Elderly.
