The Monterey Public Library and Pacific Grove Public Library will accept any donation of unopened, non-perishable food as an option to clear overdue fines on books and materials that have been returned (not applicable to replacement fees for lost or damaged items).  

All donations will be given to local food banks which need replenishment at this time of the year, and the libraries benefit by having overdue items returned so that others may borrow them. 
Bring your food donations to either Library or to the MPL Bookmobile by December 31st. Need not have fines to donate.

Please see Flyer for preferred items. No glass, expired, damaged, rusty items please. Phone your library with any questions.
