Food for Fines 2017

Food for Fines 2017

The Metro Library Network will accept non-perishable food items in lieu of fines for overdue materials from November 1-30, 2017. All food items will go to the HACAP Food Reservoir.

Library patrons may bring one non-perishable item for each $1 owed for overdue library material. All three libraries will also accept food contributions from people who want to “pay it forward” by helping pay someone else’s fines as well as happily accept food contributions from those who have no library fines but want to help prevent hunger in the metro area.

The libraries and HACAP will not accept dented cans, glass containers or foods with past expiration dates. Food items may not be contributed to replace lost or damaged library items.

Through a similar program last year, the three libraries donated 7,328 pounds of food to HACAP which ensures that the families within our communities have access to nutritious foods, no matter their financial situation.
