Programs this week at the Yarmouth Town Libraries


Fine Forgiveness and
Patron Appreciation
February 2020

Bring your overdue items to the Yarmouth Town Libraries along with any unexpired, non-perishable items for the Yarmouth Food Pantry from now until February 29, and we will forgive your fines. This applies to overdue fines only, and does not cover lost items. If you bring extra donations and wish to help another person's fines be forgiven, you can “pay it forward” and leave an extra item beside the bin for another person to donate.

The Pantry is always in need of paper products, laundry and dish washing soap, cleaning supplies, and food storage wraps or baggies. We will accept donations at the South Yarmouth or West Yarmouth Library locations during the month of February.
