Food for fines 2016

Beginning October 31, 2016 through Saturday December 3, 2016 the library will be collecting food for fines.

Pay off fines or return your late library materials and have your fines paid off by bringing non-perishable food items to the Circulation Desk. Food items will be donated to the Hortonville Food Pantry.

General Guidelines:

  • One non-perishable food item will pay off $1.00 in fines.
  • No damaged or expired items will be accepted.
  • Food items will be applied toward fines only; not lost or damaged book charges or other fees.

Check out the StoryWalk trail!

Don't Play with Your FoodStoryWalk promotes literacy and physical fitness. Families are encouraged to participate in this No Child Left Inside activity. All are welcome to take a short hike on the Nature Trail behind the library - Hortonville Municipal Building at 531 N Nash St. and enjoy the children's book posted along the trail.

The new book on the trail is: Don't Play with Your Food by Bob Shea!

The experience is free. Visitors are encouraged to share their experience by commenting here on the date of their visit, how many people were in their party, and any comment or suggestion they may have for the project. Photos of you on the trail would be welcomed too. Sponsored by the Hortonville Public Library.

The StoryWalk Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Vermont Bicycle & Pedestrian Coaltion and the Kellogg Hubbard Library.
