The Halifax County-South Boston Public Library System will be holding “School Supplies for Fines” during the entire month of August.

During August anyone who owes library fines for overdue materials may bring new and unopened school supplies to either the Halifax Public Library or the South Boston Public Library. For every one new and unopened item that is donated $3 in overdue fines will be forgiven from the individual’s library account.

For example, a person who donates a pack of new and unopened pencils will have $3 in overdue fines forgiven for that donation, said Library Director Jay Stephens.

All donated school supplies will be given to Halifax County Public Schools.
