Food for Fines is Back!

Tigard Library’s Food For Fines Drive Returns
Sunday, March 20-Saturday, March 26, 2016
Take $1 off your fines for each non-perishable food item you donate during the Tigard Library’s Food for Fines drive from Sunday, March 20, through Saturday, March 26, 2016. You can clear up to $10 of fines from your account.

The library will donate the food to the St. Vincent DePaul food pantry in Tigard, which will distribute it to local families in need. March is an important month for food pantries because their inventory is often depleted.

Acceptable donations include:
  • Canned meats (tuna, chicken, salmon etc.)
  • Canned and boxed meals (chili, soup, macaroni and cheese etc.)
  • Peanut butter
  • Pasta, rice and cereal
  • Canned fruits
  • 100% fruit juices
  • Baby food
The Library cannot accept homemade, perishable, open or unlabeled items, rusty cans or items past their expiration date. Food for Fines applies only to fines, not other library charges.

Reduce Your Library Fines and Take a Bite Out of Hunger!!!
