As part of the Fine For(GIVING) charity and donation drives going on through the end of December, the Natchitoches Parish Library will also host a blood drive with Life-Share Blood Center Nov. 27 from 6-7 p.m. in the Third Floor Meeting Room.
“This is a unique opportunity for our patrons to help our community and completely wipe out any overdue fines they might have,” said Community Outreach Coordinator Alan Niette. “Our patrons are what give our library life, and now they can literally give life back to the community.”
No matter the total amount of the overdue fines or what item it was returned late (DVD, book, laptop, Wifi2Go, etc.), the NPL will offer complete forgiveness. Fines resulting from lost or damaged items may not be waived.
Those interested may sign up at the NPL’s Second Floor Circulation Desk by calling 357-3280, by messaging the NPL on Facebook or by going by the day of the blood drive. Those that sign up will receive a reminder beforehand.
