Monroe library to accept food instead of fines

The Monroe Township Public Library will offer amnesty for overdue materials in exchange for non-perishable food donations from Jan. 2-31 at the library, 4 Municipal Plaza, Monroe.

All donations will benefit the Middlesex County Food Organization and Outreach Distribution Services (MCFOODS), which collects and distributes non-perishable items at no cost to over 80 local food pantries and soup kitchens throughout the county.
