Food for Fines

Food for Fines is happening again this holiday season!

Support the food banks and pay down your library fines - all at the same time.  Each non-perishable food item you bring to the library between December 1-10 is worth $5 off your library fines.  It's a good deal for you, the community, and the library!

  • Only applicable to late fines, not lost items or other account charges.
  • Expired food will not be accepted.
  • Because of their low price-point, 4 ramen packages = $5.
  • Bottled water will not be accepted as a food item; it’s not food and water is freely available through the tap.
