Lower your existing library fines and help feed the hungry in your community.
Each can, box, or bag of non-expired, non-perishable, unopened, undamaged food items you bring to the library Tuesday November 13 through Wednesday November 21 will count for $1 off your existing library fines. Bring your donations and library card to the circulation desk and staff will waive fines up to $20.
Food for Fines donations may not be used to pay lost item charges, nor to pay Unique Management fees associated with debt collection.
Any donations will gladly be accepted, so if you do not have fines on your account, you can still make a donation!
