Roslyn Library Patrons give “Food For Fines”

For the past 12 years, Roslyn’s Bryant Library, has led an effort with Joan Casson Sauer, Assistant Director of the library and Ellen Broder, an INN volunteer. The project called “Food For Fines” has happened each November for one week. During that time, the library would collect nonperishable food instead of fees for overdue books from generous library card holders. All of the food collected would be donated to The INN for the annual Thanksgiving meal at the Mary Brennan INN soup kitchen. Recently, Executive Director Jean Kelly and INN Board member Rob Kammerer met with Ellen, Joan and Victor Caputo, Director of Bryant Library, to present them with a certificate and a dedicated plaque to hang for their invaluable partnership and effort throughout the years with The INN. Patrons of the library will be able to take advantage of “Food for Fines” again this July. The INN is so grateful for the contributions from those in the community.
