Food For Fines March 23-29

Got some library fines you'd like to pay off?  The library will hold its sixth Food for Fines drive Sunday, March 23 –Saturday, March 29, 2014. For every two non-perishable food items donated, the library will waive $1 of fines from library patrons’ accounts, up to $10.  The Food for Fines program applies only to fines, not damaged or lost items.  Patrons may contribute as many additional food items as they wish.
 Acceptable donations include:  Canned meats (tuna, chicken, salmon etc.)

Canned and box meals (chili, soup, macaroni and cheese etc.)

Peanut butter

Pasta, rice, cereal

Canned fruits

100% fruit juice

• Baby food

The Library cannot accept unlabeled or rusty cans, homemade, perishable or open items.

March is National Nutrition Month. The library will donate the food to the St. Vincent de Paul food pantry in Tigard to distribute to those in need. March is an important month for food pantries because their inventory is often depleted.

This food drive will be held only at the Tigard Library. It does not involve other libraries in the Washington County Cooperative Library System.
