The Fayetteville Public Library has once again supported CEO with their Food for Fines program, enabling patrons to pay library fees with food donations for one week in November. Here library employees Jonathan Atha and Sam Palmer deliver 3040 pounds of food collected at the library. We want to thank all of the library employees for their work in this effort.
