Help get much-needed school supplies to kids in the city while eliminating library fees during a “Supplies for Fines” campaign at the Danville Public Library. For every new, unopened school supply donation brought to either Danville Public Library location, the Library will waive $2 from the total in fines and fees associated with your library account.

The maximum amount to be waived is $50 per account. The campaign begins on Friday, Dec. 1, and will continue through Saturday, Dec. 30.

All donations collected during this campaign will be given to elementary schools in the Danville Public Schools system to distribute as needed throughout the school year. The list of items needed by the students includes crayons, pencils, glue sticks, child-sized scissors, colored pencils, construction paper and more. For a full list of acceptable donations, please visit the Danville Public Library website or Facebook page.

“Supplies for Fines” presents an excellent opportunity to give back to the community and reclaim access to the many free services the Library has to offer.

However, it is not necessary to have fines to participate in this worthy cause. Items can be donated at the Danville Public Library's Main Branch or Westover Branch during business hours.

Visit or call 434-799-5195 for more information.
