Programs this week at the Yarmouth Town Libraries


Fine Forgiveness
February 2019

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 28, and we will forgive your fines. This applies to overdue fines only, and does not cover lost materials. If you bring extra items and wish to help another patron have their fines forgiven, you can "pay it forward" and leave an extra item beside the bin for another patron 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.
