Feed the Meter, a video series by OakPark.com, lets Oak Park and River Forest residents give their two cents — literally — by feeding the OakPark.com parking meter and answering a question on life in our villages. In each episode, Feed the Meter host Patty Keyuranggul visits a local event or landmark with a new question for residents and an opportunity to donate some change to the Oak Park River Forest Food Pantry.
In this episode, we visit Oak Park Public Library's Main Branch to ask residents, "How much do you think you have paid in library fines so far this year?"
Patty also meets with Library Executive Director Deirdre Brennen to find out how the Library uses money from overdue book fines, and Virtual Services Manager Anne Slaughter talks about the Library's new website launching next month.
In each Feed the Meter episode, readers are encouraged to watch the video and comment with their own answer.
