    The Wilmington Memorial Library is sponsoring Food for Fines during the month of August to benefit the Wilmington Food Pantry. Patrons may have their library fines cleared by bringing a nonperishable food donation to the library. In the spirit of the program, we ask that the estimated value of the donation be close to the amount of the fine. Those who do not have fines are also encouraged to donate to the Food Pantry. Here is a  list of items needed by the Food Pantry.
