Food For Fines, 2019

Fines happen. Whether it’s a book that slid under the car seat during the drive to the library or a movie that never made it back into its case, many of us owe a dollar or two (or more!) to the library.

However your fines happened, we are pleased to be offering our fifth annual Food for Fines campaign!

Every canned good or non-perishable food item you bring to your library October 28–November 8 will reduce your existing fines or hold fees by one dollar. (Food for Fines cannot be used toward fees for lost or damaged materials, collection agency fees, lost card fees, or other charges.)

All food will be donated to the Manna Food Center. Shelf-stable foods such as canned fruits, vegetables and meats, dried beans, brown rice, quinoa, low sugar cereals, baby food, formula, and vegetarian items will be accepted as donations. Unfortunately, we cannot accept home-canned items, opened foods, or foods past their expiration dates.

No fines, but still want to get involved? No problem! All customers are welcome to drop off donations at our branches during this program.
