Cook Memorial Library is again allowing their patrons to get rid of their library fines while also helping out our community in the process! Starting Monday, November 4, patrons may bring any unopened, non-expired, and non-perishable food items to the library. One food item will waive $1 of patron fines, up to $10 per card. Please note the fines waived will be for late fees only, and not for collection, processing, or replacement fees. Bring your items to the main desk of the library in order to have fines waived. The food items collected will help contribute to our community sharing cupboard located in the front foyer of the library.

For more information about this and other library programs, please contact the library at 541-962-1339. READ, LEARN, DISCOVER @ your Cook Memorial Library, 2006 4th St., La Grande, OR, call 541.962.1339 or visit the library online at
