Food for Fines

This year, from December 7 to 11, the Library will accept non-perishable food donations as payment for library fines in lieu of cash. Students and employees can pay off $2 worth of fines with a food item (max of $20). After the food donations have been counted, students and staff must pay any remaining balance. The food donations will then be distributed to local food banks.
