Sharing & Giving

This February you can share & give back to your community with Food for Friends & snacks for kids!

Food for Friends, running February 12-17, is an annual initiative to help stock community food banks and forgive some library fines. This gives you the opportunity to donate unexpired, non-perishable food items to your local library in exchange for credits toward accrued fines.

  • For each item donated, we’ll forgive $1 of your fines on overdue materials (not applicable toward lost or damaged items).
  • Please note that fines can only be forgiven on overdue materials that have been returned, so make sure you check under the bed for any misplaced books or movies first!
  • Fine-free patrons are encouraged to pay it forward to help others pay down their fines as well!
  • All donations collected during Food for Friends will be distributed to food banks in your community.

School age children can find nutritious snacks at all seven of our community libraries – all day and every day that we’re open! Looking for more community food assistance? Learn more on our snacks page
