Library offers amnesty


Pay your library fine with canned goods or personal items for the Panola College Feed the Need Program.

Have a library fine? The Panola College M.P. Baker Library offers amnesty through Monday, Dec. 9 for anyone making a donation to Feed the Need.

“Amnesty will allow anyone with an existing library fine or an overdue item to clear their record by donating to Panola College’s Feed the Need Comfort Closet program,” said Cristie Ferguson, Director of Library Services.

Overdue items should be returned and fines paid in donated items instead of other forms of payment.  The library will accept one non-perishable food item or one travel-sized toiletry item (toothpaste, toothbrush, deodorant, shampoo, body wash) per dollar owed.

For assistance with calculating the number of items needed, patrons may call 903-693-2052 between 7:30 a.m. and 9 p.m. Monday – Thursday; 7:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. on Friday; and 4 – 9 p.m. on Sunday.  Email [email protected] any time.
