Do you owe the library a fortune in overdue book fines? You won't want to miss this opportunity.

During the month of September, the Bettendorf Public Library will forgive $1 of every fine for each non-perishable food or toiletry donation you make. All donations will go to the Bettendorf Community Food Pantry.

The items the pantry is most in need of include canned fruit and meats, toothpaste, cereal, and jelly.

Although there's no limit to how items you can donate, you're out of luck if you've lost or damaged book-those items will not qualify for the forgiveness opportunity.
